Hello! We’re NAViGO.
We’re an award-winning social enterprise who provide mental health services to the NHS and beyond across North East Lincolnshire.
The whole basis of our work is to ‘deliver services that we would be happy for our own family to use’.
We offer a range of mental health services, including acute and community facilities – as well as specialist support such as older adult’s inpatient services; rehabilitation and recovery; community mental health; and an outstanding specialist eating disorder facility.
We are in the process of developing workshop(s) to help young people up to the age of 25 to raise awareness and breakdown the stigma of MH within the LGBTQ+ community. We are also signing up to be part of the Rainbow badge scheme and are aiming for gold.
Named one of the 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For by The Sunday Times, for five years in succession, we’re also the current Health and Social Care Social Enterprise of the Year.
We even own a garden centre. That’s right – we’ve developed income-generating, commercially-viable businesses that provide training, education and employment opportunities including Grimsby Garden Centre and two cafes.
Why the name? The name symbolises the mental health journey many people take as they ‘navigate’ their way towards recovery, with the ‘go’ signifying positive steps forward for individuals and mental health services.
Oh and in case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced ‘NAV – ee – go’.
(we always get asked that)
