We’re delighted to announce that Secure Care have succeeded in their bid to provide mental health care in the category B men’s prison in Fazakerley, for an initial period of six years.

We will be setting up and running a recovery focussed, trauma informed integrated mental health service there. It will provide psychologically informed, evidence based specialist support for those needing interventions to address mental health and personality disorder, and services for those with learning disabilities. We’ll also be working with the substance misuse treatment provider, primary care and others.

Head of Operations Jonathan Drew is delighted to extended the division’s hugely regarded offer, which will formally begin early next year on the fifth anniversary of the start of Secure’s award-winning work at HMP Liverpool. Jonathan says: “This contract win is a strong vote of confidence in the quality of our care. It also gives us the chance to serve more people in our local footprint, mirroring the important work done at HMP Liverpool. Well done to all involved in the bid.”

The team’s work at Liverpool has also seen individuals winning awards as well as Team of the Month and a trustwide accreditation.
