Safe Haven Basingstoke
From August, Andover Mind will be working in partnership with Southern Health to deliver a Safe Haven service to Basingstoke and Mid Hampshire. The service will provide out of hours support to anybody experiencing a mental health crisis. Commissioned by the Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight CCG, it will initially be delivered from 3 Vyne Road in Basingstoke and will be open 7 days a week between the hours of 6pm and 10pm.
During the coming months, we will be in communication with all partners, including service users and carers, to ensure we are providing the best model possible when the service launches in August. We are committed to supporting the people of Basingstoke and Mid Hampshire as effectively as we can and look forward to working with Southern Health to make this possible.
We will bring you updates as things continue to develop so please keep an eye on our website and social media for more. Plans for recruitment for the service have already started and we will be posting roles on our vacancies page over the next few days. We also plan to hold an information session at the Tempus Business Centre on Kingsclere Road very soon.
