Intensive Community Assessment and Treatment Team

We offer rapid-response, short-term advice and interventions for adults with intellectual disabilities who are experiencing an increase in emotional and/or behavioral difficulties in any type of community setting. We provide a range of specialist interventions that are based on individual needs identified by a thorough assessment process.

We aim to support individuals and their supporters in the most therapeutic environment for them, reducing admissions to inpatient services, and supporting timely and effective discharges where inpatient admissions have been necessary.

Our service is for adults (18-65) with a diagnosis of an intellectual disability and consists of nursing, psychology, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.

ICATT North is based in Mansfield and covers Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark and Bassetlaw and has disabled access.

The ICATT South Service is based at Highbury Hospital and covers Nottingham City, Broxtowe, Rushcliffe and Gedling. Highbury Hospital has disabled access.
