The Reuben Young People’s Centre

March 2022

The Reuben Foundation made a multimillion-pound gift to build a new, state-of-the-art Young People’s Centre at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London. This comes in the light of the rapidly increasing number of young people experiencing deteriorating mental health.

The Reuben Young People’s Centre is designed to help provide immediate, specialist and integrated care to young people in mental health crisis in a way that best meets the needs of the individual and their family. The Centre will be the largest of its kind in London combining – for the first time – mental and physical care in one dedicated environment for adolescents. Staffed by a multidisciplinary team of paediatricians, specialist nurses, psychologists, therapists, trained volunteers, councillors and youth workers, the Centre will also be designed in partnership with young people to create a relevant and age-appropriate environment, designed to promote rest, recovery and wellbeing while incorporating advanced wireless sensor and monitoring technologies to support on and off-site clinical teams.
