We provide specialist mental health and learning disability services to the people of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. We’re an innovative and forward-thinking organisation, with a real commitment to providing a high quality service. We were also the first trust in the country to be awarded an ‘outstanding’ rating for acute inpatient services, crisis services and psychiatric intensive care services.
We have a variety of opportunities available for experienced and newly qualified staff. If you are looking for a new role and want to learn more about working for ²gether, visit our dedicated recruitment website.
Carers and families provide a vital support network but are at greater risk of experiencing mental and physical health problems and emotional stress themselves due to the demands of being a carer. As well as providing care and treatment for the people who use our services, we are also here to support you.
Your views and suggestions are important. They help us to improve the services we provide. We would like you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continue to make life better for people who use our services and their families/carers.

What is ²gether NHS Foundation Trust?
²gether NHS Foundation Trust (²gether) provides specialist mental health and learning disability services to the people of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.
We serve a combined population of 761,000 people who live within 1,900 square miles of rural and urban landscape. 96% of our services are provided within the community and as close to an individual’s family and friends as possible – this is an essential factor in helping to improve a person’s recovery.
Last year, our 2,300 dedicated permanent and bank staff delivered services to more than 40,000 individuals and offered education and support to their carers and families.
