Bedfordshire Supported Housing Care Services Limited (BSH) aims to provide innovative and modern environments, to support vulnerable adults with a range of mental health issues within the county of Bedfordshire.

Francis House is our first home situated in an established location in the centre of Bedford. It is a modernised, spacious 6 bedroom Victorian House. All rooms have ensuite facilities and there is disabled access to the ground floor.

Rutland Road Care Home is our second home situated a short distance away from Francis House in the centre of Bedford town.

Rutland Road has 5 beds all with ensuite facilities. It is a Victorian House but has a modern feel being more open plan. The decor is to the same high standard as all BSH homes. It has two bedrooms on the ground floor to enable us to meet the needs of service users with limited mobility.


Service User Group

We provide a service to people with complex mental health needs, whose symptoms can be severe and enduring. They may require a higher level of support and care to enable them to live well in the community. Many of our referrals come from Assertive Outreach Teams and Forensic Teams but we accept referrals from all secondary mental health services.

Francis House Homecare (Domiciliary Service)

We are now able to offer a robust, client centred and flexible domiciliary care service. This service is registered with the Care Quality Commission and is delivered by suitably qualified, experienced and compassionate staff. For further information please see our information sheet below.
