Cygnet Oaks is a 35 bed hospital specialising in mental health rehabilitation for men. It provides state-of-the-art facilities and a multi-disciplinary treatment programme designed to assist service users with their return to independent living.

Cygnet Oaks is made up of two units and has dedicated occupational therapy space in both, including a gymnasium, music room, specialist arts and crafts rooms, library and internet cafe. It also has three dedicated therapy kitchens to help with the development of service users’ daily living skills. All bedrooms have en-suite wet rooms with attractive views across the surrounding area and there are extensive grounds for service users to enjoy as an aid to their rehabilitation.

Barnsley town centre is a short walk or bus ride away, giving service users access to the many facilities in the local community. To promote social inclusion we have developed pathways linking the service user’s short term goals in care plans with activities in the mainstream services of the local communities.

We offer links with the Barnsley Community to experience job placements, volunteer work and courses in a graded and supportive manner also support our service users’ return to work, if it is the choice of the service users to do so.
