Sunnydale is situated in a semi-rural location in the South Shropshire town of Craven Arms. The house is a large well-furbished semi-detached property within easy walking distance of a wide range of local shops and amenities.

Set in picturesque surroundings, Craven Arms itself has a number of attractions, including the nearby Clun and Stokesay castles and the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. Located on the A49 between Shrewsbury and Ludlow, the town also has strong road/rail transport links to Hereford, Shrewsbury, Cardiff and Swansea.

Overview of the service

Sunnydale is a specialist 24-hour staffed residential care service for up to 10 adults with mental health problems, including anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, personality disorders and individuals with a dual diagnosis. In this instance, the term "dual diagnosis" refers to adults with mental health problems who, in addition, have a substance abuse problem and/or learning disabilities.

Since opening in 2008, Sunnydale has forged strong links with the local CMHT and Shropshire recovery team. This collaborative working has been central to the home's success.
