WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?
If you refer to our organisation structure, you’ll see we operate a Community Mental Health Workplace Scheme.
The Daventry Contact Organisation has provided primary services in the community for over 25 years.
The second is that the charity provides a service of work experience based placements which include training for individuals recovering from Mental Health related problems.
Referrals of individuals from Community Mental Health Teams or similar, that are in receipt of a health service related personal budget allocation are invited and welcome to consider a placement with the charity.
The type of work experience offered is linked to ‘Personal Output Objectives’ approved by NHS Northamptonshire and is tailored to the second primary service of the charity described below.
We pride ourselves in caring for people and keen to encourage folks who join us for whatever length of time they need, to aid their recovery and feel better about themselves.
This service is also extend to referrals from Northamptonshire County Council’s Employment and Disability Service or similar and individuals with personal budget allocations that enables work experienced placements to be engaged in with the charity.
