Work is well underway on our new £1.2m hospital avoidance service for people with a learning disability, which is on track to open in spring 2023.

Builders working on Radcliffe PlaceIt will initially have four beds to provide short-term residential care for 16- to 24-year-olds who are experiencing a crisis.

The aim is to help them avoid hospital, enable recovery, and provide greater support to families and carers.

It’s based in the Radcliffe area of Bury and will be open to people across Greater Manchester.

People with a learning disability, families, carers, peer support groups and professionals across Greater Manchester have been involved every step of the way. They recently voted to name the new service Radcliffe Place.
