Is there a charge?

No, the service is free to clients through Wiltshire Council funding.

Who can access the service?

Our service is for people who have been or are supported by the Community Mental Health Team.

When we have a vacancy, we form a panel with members from Wiltshire Council and the Community Mental Health Team to decide who would be best suited for the service.
