Atlas House, Adult Learning Disability - Greenwich

  • Atlas House provides care for adults with learning difficulties and needs that cannot be met in mainstream services. It is a purpose-built specialist inpatient service, based in South East London. The team can provide 24/7 support for up to 11 people.

    Our service works with people who have a learning disability together with complex or challenging behaviour, mental health needs, and neurodevelopmental needs.

    Atlas House is divided into four flats. As a result, our team can provide care in a single-sex environment, when necessary.

    We use a multidisciplinary approach to support patients at Atlas House. This means we work with other teams and agencies to provide care. For instance, we work with:

    • GPs
    • Substance misuse services
    • Third sector agencies
    • Acute trusts
    • Social care.

    Patients can ask their family or carer to be involved in their care. This ensures they can share their views regarding the patient’s care and treatment.

  • Reception phone number: 020 8319 7112
