Look Ahead Arundel Project

Who is the project for?

Who do we help?

Arundel Project is staffed 24/7 and provides accommodation and on-site support for people with primary diagnosis of mental ill health, who may also have secondary needs relating to substance use, offending etc. Many of the clients spent a considerable amount of time in hospital or had multiple admissions under the Mental Health Act. The service works in partnership with other agencies such as Community Mental Health Teams, Assertive Outreach Teams and Crisis Team and majority of the clients have a care coordinator in secondary care services.
