Navigo wins contract for children’s mental health services

Navigo has been appointed as the new provider of emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children in North East Lincolnshire, delivering the Young Minds Matter  contract from April 2023.

The service, which offers children and young people up to the age of 19 support with their emotional wellbeing and mental health, has been delivered by Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

The way that the NHS commissions other organisations to deliver services to local people has changed in recent months and as a result of this, the contract has been awarded to the local provider.

Councillor Margaret Cracknell, portfolio holder for children and education at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “One of our priorities is for children and young people living in North East Lincolnshire to be happy, healthy and prosperous, and some of this starts with taking care of mental health.

“Having excellent services to support our young people with their emotional wellbeing and mental health is vital in achieving this goal.

“I’d like to thank Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for delivering the service over many years, and to welcome our partners at NAViGO.

“The first step to solving any problem is to seek help, and I would take this opportunity to urge parents to have conversations with their children about their mental health – ask your child how they’re doing, and familiarise yourself with places that they can get support if they need it.”

Simon Beeton, Navigo Chief Executive said: “We are excited to embrace this opportunity to become an all-age mental health services provider.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming new staff to our organisation, building on the good work of Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and using our experience and knowledge to deliver an excellent service that supports the mental health of young people across North East Lincolnshire.”

The service will remain the same and can be accessed in the usual ways. Current staff and existing service users have been notified and it is planned they will move across to NAViGO.
