Investigation of the move‐on needs of patients from Ravenswood Medium Secure Unit in Hampshire has shown that more independent community‐based accommodation is required. Such schemes are now part of the Supporting People programme and need to incorporate effective risk management systems for this client group, with an agenda for inclusion and low‐level support. The paper considers risk factors and describes an innovative out‐of‐hours support service funded through Supporting People which takes a preventative approach.
