We were the first single speciality Trust to be approved as a Foundation Trust. Based in the village of Whalley in East Lancashire, and with services in Lancashire and Greater Manchester, we support people with a learning disability who require treatment in specialist and secure services, including individuals who have a forensic history and those who present with extremes of challenging behaviour. We aim to support their rehabilitation and a return to the community as soon as possible.
We have been operating as a Foundation Trust since 2009 based on this unique position. In this period we have continued the modernization of the delivery of our inpatient services through the development of individual care pathways for our service users.
This website shows just some of what we do at Calderstones. Please use it to help find out how we support people with learning disabilities, or how to access our services if you are a commissioner, from a local authority, a family member or a carer.

A Care Pathway is a structured approach to care delivery that clearly describes the journey an individual is likely to take when moving through the care system.
Its purpose is to ensure that each individual receives the most appropriate care and treatment within clearly agreed timeframes and in the least restrictive environments.
At Calderstones, we ensure that service users are fully engaged in every aspect of their care (this is called a shared pathway)
