Yeldall Manor: How to Apply
Applications to Yeldall Manor are processed by our Admissions Team.
The admission process involves:
- the submission of an application form
- a face-to-face or telephone interview
- the provision of professional references
- review of previous criminal convictions and other factors
- confirmation of funding
Ideally, applicants come to Yeldall Manor for a pre-arranged interview so that they have the opportunity to see the programme first-hand and to talk with current residents. During the interview process, prospective residents are assessed for their suitability for the Manor Programme, their level of motivation, and the level of risk they pose to themselves and others to ensure that Yeldall Manor is a safe place for both residents and staff. We also ask all applicants to confirm that they are comfortable being a part of a Christian programme and that they are willing to submit to our discipline system.
When assessing suitability, we will consider the following:
- Is the applicant a male, aged between 18 & 65?
- Is there a serious problem of long-term drug and/or alcohol misuse?
- Is the applicant able to participate in a work-based therapeutic programme?
- Has there been any attempted suicide for six months prior to admission?
- Has there been any self-harm for three months prior to admission?
- What prescribed medication is the applicant taking, if any, and is it in accordance with our policy on Psychotropic Medication?
- Is the applicant prepared to accept the Terms and Conditions of residence?
We will consider applications from men with diagnosed mental health issues or serious crimes such as Arson, Sex and other Schedule 1 Offences on an individual basis.
