The Redwoods Centre

Shrewsbury, Shropshire, United Kingdom

The Redwoods Centre is a purpose built, award winning inpatient facility which opened in September 2012. Based in Shrewsbury it serves the population of Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. Comprising of four buildings, the centre offers 79 beds for adults with acute mental health problems, dementia and rehabilitiation needs, as well as a 32 bedded low secure forensic unit. The buildings are named after local hills; Clee, Wrekin, Caradoc and Wenlock, and the actual wards after trees, Birch, Yew, Pine, Holly, Oak, Willow and Laurel.

The aim of the centre is to create a home from home for people using the unit. As well as the residential rooms there is a central ‘street’, with a café, shop, bank and pharmacy. The welcoming central entrance building includes gentle landscaping and deliberately ‘domestic’ architecture whilst roof lights and windows throughout the single-storey clinical accommodation ensure that patients get plenty of sunlight to help their recovery.
