About our service

The Low Secure Service comprises of two 15 bed male wards and a 12 bed female ward. The two male wards; Isherwood and Delaney are based at the new purpose built Lowry Unit. The female ward is called Loweswater and is also situated on the Prestwich site.

The service is designed to provide intensive rehabilitation for people with enduring mental health needs and who cannot be safely treated in an open inpatient recovery unit. The services operate within the principles of ‘nothing about me without me’ placing our service users at the centre of their care and supporting recovery and choice where this is clinically appropriate.

Service users have access to a wide range of activities to support their recovery and our facilities include a fully equipped gym, a large sports hall, workshop and classroom environments. Support is available to acquire skills for voluntary or paid employment opportunities.  Service users in low secure services are supported to access facilities within the wider community such as local gyms, college and volunteering.

Our staff are on hand to offer service users and their family members and carers information about mental health, recovery and the choices and resources available to them. Carers information packs are available and carers events take place throughout the year.
