Flint House is a charity, entirely funded by donations from those in the police service and their families. It is with these generous donations that they help and heal over 3,200 serving and retired police officers each year, providing physical rehabilitation and mental health support.
Flint House offers a safe, relaxed environment for serving and retired officers. Everyone is treated with care and respect (no ranks, no hierarchy) by their caring and experienced practitioners. Whether a new recruit or an experienced veteran, there’s a good chance you’ll need their services at some point.
They offer a plethora of rehabilitation facilities including an Indoor Gym, 12.5m Swimming Pool, Hydrotherapy Pool and Mental Health Lodge to provide guests with the best experience possible on the road to recovery. Their physiotherapists, nurses and healthcare professionals help officers get back on duty quickly, effectively and with long-lasting results.
All bedrooms are single occupancy, equipped with en-suite bathrooms as well as Freeview TV and free WiFi. Your stay will also give you 3 delicious and nutritious meals every day which are prepared using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Vegetarian and Vegan options are also available.
Socialising areas include a relaxed bar for residents, comfortable lounge areas, TV rooms and a games room with pool table. Quizzes are hosted as well as opportunities for motivational speakers to attend and offer horticultural therapy.
