Carlton is an inpatient mental health ward at the Kingswood Centre. 

It provides single, same-sex accommodation, as well as same-sex living areas and garden space. Intensive treatment is provided on inpatient wards and recovery is promoted from the very beginning of admission. The ward has a weekly programme of activities which can include therapies such as arts, cooking, exercise classes and group meetings.

The service is for people with a learning disability and mental health difficulties who have more complex needs and require specialised care. 

The people we care for:

  • Are aged 18 years and over (16 years and over in exceptional circumstances).
  • Have learning disabilities, mental health issues and/or behaviour management requirements.
  • Male and female (single-sex accommodation is available).
  • Live in the community or are admitted to hospital informally or detained for assessment or treatment under the Mental Health Act.
  • In addition, some people may be transferred from prison, or the courts may order a period in hospital.

We support a range of individuals with learning disabilities who may also have:

  • autism
  • dementia
  • epilepsy
  • mental health diagnoses
  • behavioural difficulties
