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 forensic needs and those who present with extremes of challenging behaviour.
We have been operating as a Foundation Trust since 2009 based on this unique position. In this period we have maintained our market position and achieved our financial and quality targets, continuing the modernization of the delivery of our inpatient services through the development of care pathways and transforming the delivery of social care.
This website shows just some of what we do at Calderstones. 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 volunteer.
SAFE STAFFING: It is a requirement of the NHS Chief Nursing Officer England and the Care Quality Commission that from June 2014 all hospitals must publish information about the number of nursing staff on each ward. Each month, we publish our latest staffing levels and provide links to papers discussed in public at our Trust Board meetings.

Volunteers are very important in building relationships with service users. If you would like to be a part of what we do, please get in touch. >>
My Shared Pathway...
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.
The purpose of a clearly specified Care Pathway 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 treatment and care (this is called a shared pathway)
