Service Description:
The Redbridge Assertive Outreach Team (RAOT)is a specialist multidisciplinary team that offers care for adults aged 16 to 65 with severe and enduring mental health problems. The RAOT works with people who have a documented history of non-engagement with services, non-compliance with medication and also have a significant risk of behaviour to themselves or the public. This will also include exploitation by others and vulnerability to self neglect.

The service offers intensive treatment and sees people in their own homes or elsewhere in the community. We try to facilitate hospital admission, when required, and offer regular in-reach to clients in hospital, working collaboratively with ward staff.

The RAOT works with different agencies from the statutory sector and voluntary sector. Our team is made up of: doctors nurses social workers occupational therapists
