Our vision is to be the highest quality provider of specialist behavioural health services to adults. We achieve this through qualified and dedicated staff who provide high quality services and deliver the right model of care.

We live and work by four strongly-held Values, which define who we are and what we stand for. We choose people who share these values. We want to meet people who choose us as the place to bring their skills because they believe in what we are doing. We need people who are motivated, resilient and driven to do the very best for the people we care for.
We exist to provide the best possible care for every person we care for.
We are open and transparent in everything we do.
Whatever we do, we work with dedication and commitment.
We are honest with ourselves, our colleagues and the people we care for.
We’re committed to quality care and positive outcomes, and have a fantastic relationship with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We’re inspected regularly, and we also operate our own system of quality checks. Our services are driven by in-house integrated multidisciplinary teams consisting of psychologists, therapists, nurses and support staff.
The Cambian Group began as an 18-bed rehabilitation hospital piloted by NHP Healthcare Partnerships, which was the subject of a management buyout in 2004 backed by GI Partners. Cambian Healthcare was formed.
The team was driven by a desire to deliver better life outcomes for patients and developed a unique therapeutic programme called Active Care™. In September 2005, they purchased seven special needs schools and created Cambian Education. This acquisition brought with it a team of people with huge experience and expertise in the field of Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
The Cambian schools pioneered the 52-week ‘Waking Day Curriculum’ for students with autism and continue to lead with the Active Learning™ programme. What’s more, they have been given Ofsted's highest rating and praised for delivering an "outstanding level of care and education". Always moving toward a person-centred approach, Cambian Education and Cambian Healthcare continued to grow to become market leaders in their respective fields.
During 2009, the divisions combined their strengths to create a powerful force in the field of specialist healthcare and education – The Cambian Group, launched at the beginning of 2010.
In July 2010, The Cambian Group achieved further important growth by joining with Care Aspirations, an independent provider of specialist learning disability services for adults. This provided exciting opportunities for expansion, adding an additional 200 beds.
In April 2014, Cambian and Advanced Child Care merged and was listed on the London Stock Exchange. Shortly after this, Cambian acquired three specialist further education colleges from Mencap.
In December 2016 the adult division of Cambian, Cambian Adult Services, was purchased by UHS, one of the largest hospital management companies in the United States. UHS also owns Cygnet Health Care and exciting times are ahead for both Cambian and Cygnet Health Care.
In April 2017 Cambian Adult Services became CAS Behavioural Health.
