St Martins part of new Norfolk-wide mental health service

St Martins, alongside lead partner Together, has been selected by Norfolk County Council to belong to a partnership to deliver mental health support to people living across the county. The new service will build on the existing work of St Martins to support vulnerable people in the community.  


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 Norwich and Central Norfolk MindSt Martins Housing TrustWest Norfolk Mind and Great Yarmouth and Waveney 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.

Derek Player, General Manager of St Martins said, “we are really looking forward to bringing our skills in working with people with complex social needs to the partnership throughout the county”
Cashain David, Director of Operations and Development for Together for Mental Wellbeing, said:
“We are very pleased to be continuing our support for people in Norfolk, building on the work we have done in the county over the past three and a half years. We will continue to work closely with Norfolk County Council and the CCGs to implement this new model of support. We are particularly looking forward to working with our new partners to continue supporting people to live as independently as possible in their local community, and to make the most of the community resources available in Norfolk.”

The new service will begin operating in March 2018.
