NAViGO Health and Social Care CIC provide health and social care services to a population of 158,000. They are a progressive and ambitious organisation that aims to support those living with a mental health illness, their carers and families in the simplest and most effective ways. Navigo are different because they know working with the same methods doesn’t work forever; and will continue to challenge the way they do things to create the best services that are centred on the people who use them.

Working together across Humber, Coast and Vale. Navigo really are different; they’ve purchased a garden centre and a caravan. Why? We’re growing and improving our services year on year; which means we also have to work hard at finding new ways to make our service sustainable.
