The Selden Centre is a modern purpose designed 10 bed inpatient assessment and intervention service for people with learning disabilities. Its fundamental aim is to support people back to community living. The multi-disciplinary team provides a high quality service for individuals with learning disabilities who require expert intensive assessment, intervention and support.
Our team offer individualised support with opportunities for 1:1 therapeutic sessions to men and women who are referred into the service because of:
- escalating needs in the community;
- placement breakdown requiring reassessment of needs;
- or step down from a more secure and /or high cost residential/ hospital service.
We believe that people with learning disabilities have the same rights as all members of society and that's why we place the people who use our services at the heart of what we do.
Covid-19 full vaccination may be a condition of employment for this role, unless an exemption applies. The successful applicant may have contact with vulnerable service users and we will therefore seek proof of being fully vaccinated during the recruitment process.
