An independent report of an integrated model of community forensic mental health provision.

A new report launched today suggests that savings can be made and better resident outcomes achieved through a new approach to community forensic mental health provision delivered by care, support and housing provider Look Ahead.

These are the key findings in an independent report by HACT measuring the outcomes of Tabard Forensic Service, in Tower Hamlets, London.

Opened in April 2014, the service was pioneered in partnership with East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH). It supports 19 male residents aged 18 to 74 who are affected by serious and enduring mental health issues and have significant offending histories.

The report highlights that it is possible for police, clinicians and other agencies to work effectively in partnership delivering safe services to patients with a forensic history within the community, while also protecting public safety.
