Working at the Selden Centre

At the Selden Centre we provide specialist inpatient care. Our mission is to help people with learning disabilities recover to play as full a life in society as possible.

That means planning what each person will need from us before they come through the door. It means getting to know them, caring for them, supporting them and working with them in a safe space. And it means helping them leave when it is safe for them to.
