Great Yarmouth & Waveney Mind and partners chosen to deliver new countywide mental health service in Norfolk
Together for Mental Wellbeing has been selected by Norfolk County Council to lead a partnership to deliver mental health support to people living across the county.
Following a year-long process undertaken by the Council and five CCGs to re-organise local provision, Together was awarded the contract to deliver the service in partnership with Great Yarmouth & Waveney Mind, Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind, St Martins Housing Trust and West Norfolk Mind. The new model of support has been designed to achieve better outcomes for people by creating more integrated care pathways, meaning someone’s support is more seamless across supported living, community and outreach support as they progress. Support will continue to promote independence, and be responsive to individual need, with community support, outreach support and supported living being provided by a flexible multi-skilled team. A range of recovery-focused support will be on offer, including one-to-one support, peer support, groups and drop-ins.
The new service will begin operating in March 2018.
Philip Eke, CEO for Great Yarmouth & Waveney Mind, said:
“We are very pleased to be working in partnership with Together for Mental Wellbeing and other partners to continue to support people to live as independently as possible in their local community, and to make the most of the community resources available in Norfolk.”
Louise Jordan-Hall, Chair of Trustees for Great Yarmouth & Waveney Mind said
“ We are delighted to be involved in the delivery of this service and excited to work with our partner organisations”
