About this work

Description

Apart from the short-lived ownership of a cottage home in Redhill, Surrey, in the early 1880s, until 1950s the Association provided its services by placing ex-patients in privately owned and run homes. From the 1950s to the 1970s it acquired and administered its own homes. Since the 1980s the policy of providing long-term services operated through residential homes and hostels is being gradually superseded by contract-based activities and projects developed in response to the varying needs of different local health authorities.
