The Forensic Intensive Psychological Treatment Service (FIPTS) was developed in 2004 in partnership with the Ministry of Justice and Department of Health to treat and manage high risk offenders with severe personality disorder. In 2016 FIPTS community team became an Intensive Intervention and Risk Management Service (IIRMS) as part of the National Offender Personality Disorder strategy jointly funded by NHS England and NOMS (National Offender Management Service).

The FIPTS IIRMS Community Team is multi-disciplinary and adopts an evidence based psycho-social approach to working with service users.  As well as helping our clients reduce or stop violent offending we also strive to help improve the quality of their relationships and assist them to achieve success in other important areas such as employment, education and community living. Our main focus is to promote independence and improve the quality of life of all our clients whilst reducing their risk of recidivism.
