We take a multi-disciplinary approach. We offer a high staff to service user ratio, bringing together a wide range of expertise including Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Educators, Nurses, Social Workers and Occupational Therapists.

Ivydene completes a pathway of care developed by Choice Lifestyles across the West Midlands to support women from a low secure setting through to community supported accommodation.
