Hughes Unit Group Supporters (HUGS)

The Hughes Unit Group Supporters (HUGS) was formed in 2011 out of the imminent closure of The Hughes Unit, a 24/7 respite care facility for those with severe mental health issues.
About eight or nine inpatients started the movement which was quickly joined by carers, relatives and those concerned in the community. Although the Hughes Unit closed, HUGS continue to campaign for the return of a similar facility.
HUGS now campaigns on maintaining and improving mental health facilities in Dorset including the return of inpatient facilities to the more rural parts of Dorset. It also signposts people to the many mental health facilities within Dorset.
