Mental health bosses have promised to work with residents of a Sheffield suburb to tackle problems caused by a new centre in their neighbourhood.

Rethink, a charity which recently opened a residential support centre for patients in Thornsett Road, Nether Edge, pledged to respond to complaints around noise and security.

Dipika Kaushal, a local senior manager overseeing the service, said: “We have had a couple of complaints from local residents, which we are addressing as a priority. We will continue to arrange regular meetings with local residents to discuss any ongoing concerns they might have.

“In response to recent concerns raised by neighbours, we have put up signs in the garden to remind our residents to keep noise to a minimum and to be mindful of local neighbours. Emergency services have been called to the crisis house a handful of times because of people in the house needing attention for physical health problems.

“People staying at the service are allowed to have visitors like friends and family and mental health professionals, but no visits are allowed after 10pm.”
