Nine not-for-profit organisations will partner with the Trust to transform community mental health care in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.

The voluntary and community sector organisations selected following a competitive tender process will employ 35 people to deliver extensive new support services in a major expansion of local community mental health services.

The new frontline workers include people with lived experience, community outreach specialists and support officers. They will offer one-on-one coaching and practical help with social needs that can impact mental health like housing, accessing benefits, getting into work and feeling isolated.

“We’re very excited to be working with nine not-for-profit organisations to transform community mental health care,” said Natalie Fox, Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer.

“Our new partners will employ 35 people to provide a range of new and expanded support services. Once on board, the new frontline workers will enable us to provide help earlier to more people and reach out to those who haven’t always been able to get timely care and support.”

The new support workers will work alongside Trust staff in new neighbourhood teams offering holistic and personalised care and support to adults with complex mental health needs. These new neighbourhood services are rolling out across Barnet, Enfield and Haringey over the next three years.

“We want to make it easy for people to get help so they can achieve their recovery goals, engage in meaningful activity and contribute as fully as possible to their community.”
