North Lincolnshire Mind (formerly Scunthorpe and District Mind) has been providing mental health support in the region for almost 40 years.
We are always striving to provide the best quality service for people who need mental health support. You can find more about our current services on the 'Our Services page.
Our organisation has a structure of trustees, volunteers, staff, and service users.
We are all here to help you with any requirements you might have.
We are a completely independent charity, but we are also affiliated with the national charity Mind and we are part of Local Minds Network. There are over 100 local Minds in England and Wales and we are proud to be part of this amazing network.
We offer a wide range of services to support your recovery ranging from informal peer support and activity sessions to more structured support such as our Coping with Life courses. You can find more details in 'Our services' page.
Our vision is to promote positive wellbeing, recovery, and inclusion for those affected by mental health issues.
We take pride in being part of North Lincolnshire Mind and commit ourselves to goals that make a positive difference.
We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our work by making our service accessible to all.
We aim to build new partnerships to promote awareness and understanding of mental health within our community.
We raise expectations of our own performance and that of others and we strive to achieve excellence and quality in all that we do.
Most importantly we care, we listen, we respect and value everyone.
North Lincolnshire Mind is affiliated with the national mental health charity Mind but our income is not subsidized by the national organization. Our main source of funding comes from North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group. This funding is supplemented by income from fundraising activities, donations, and grant funding.
Over years we had a lot of amazing people organizing fundraising events in aid of North Lincolnshire Mind or making a donation to help us keep our services open to everyone. If you would like to support us but are not sure how you can call and request a fundraising pack - it is full of good ideas and tips on how to make your fundraising event a success. You can find more ideas of how your simple everyday actions can help us on our 'Support us' page.
