Sunflower House

Sunflower House

Sunflower House is our new Tier 4 inpatient mental health facility, replacing the Dewi Jones Unit in Waterloo. This new facility is for those aged 5 to 13 years old who have the most challenging mental health conditions and boasts 12 specially designed bedrooms and a family bedroom, providing a safe and high-quality space to stay.

Also provided are a new therapy garden, a calming sensory room that can be used to prepare young people for outside life, an immersive room, a de-stimulation room, a safe kitchen environment to learn cooking and other life skills, group therapy rooms and classrooms. The £3m raised by our Charity's 7 in 10 Appeal has helped to support the fit-out and furnishing of these crucial spaces. 

Sunflower House is co-located with our new community ‘Catkin’ building, which opened in October 2022. Catkin brings services together under one roof to enable a more joined-up working approach, creating better outcomes. Below you can find further information such as where to park when visiting Sunflower House and take a virtual tour of the building.
