Situated in East Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, Cedar Vale is a specialist autism hospital, providing assessment and intervention for up to 14 men living with autism and learning disabilities, as well as associated complex needs or difficulties with social engagement. Cedar Vale is an impressive period property, situated on the edge of a picturesque village in its own extensive grounds.
The service consists of three distinct areas to support individuals with different levels of need. Each of these areas are aimed at providing the individuals with an environment that will support them for moving on to more independent living.
