A place made for care – a focus on development with positive human outcomes.

Springfield is meeting changing Mental Health demands with a new generation of thinking and state-of-the-art facilities.

With the Trust, we have shaped a working culture of responsibility, innovation and determination where a complex mix of partners share the vision to create a landmark in the treatment, prevention and awareness of mental health.

Innovative funding arrangements enabled the Trust to unlock the site's potential through residential land sales, allowing them to focus on their core purpose of treatment and care.

Together, we have navigated access challenges, complicated contractual arrangements and precedent-setting environmental and social value targets. At all times, maintaining core services while delivering a neighbourhood where health facilities sit alongside homes and residents mix with patients and staff in the park, cafes, public spaces and shops.

Springfield is unique, a mixed-use London Village with healthcare at its heart- key buildings are operational, residents have moved in, and people are playing in the park. And, with this momentum, something bigger is happening - awareness of mental health is increasing, and perceptions are changing - this can be Springfield's legacy.
