Information for Commissioners
Mind BLMK has been supporting people since 1978, providing a range of services on behalf of local authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Police and Crime Commissioners and a range of other statutory bodies.
National Reach, Local Focus
We are Mind BLMK, part of a network of over 120 local Mind associations. This brings the benefits of a large, national charity alongside the clear local focus. With good links to government, campaigning, policy development and a well-respected, well-known brand, Mind BLMK offers the best of both worlds – broad knowledge and reach, combined with a truly local approach.
With a long history of working in partnership with commissioners and statutory agencies, Mind BLMK is well placed to bring added value to contracts and agreements.
Our services offer up to £18 worth of social value for every £1 spent by local commissioners, showing that our social return is a significant benefit.
We are also experts in bringing additional investment – grants, trusts, larger national funders and through fundraising and donations. This enables us to offer so much more to local people.
Since 1978, Mind has worked across our patch. We are well-known and well-connected. But more importantly, we are trusted. From our clients to our trustees, we are a group of local people, making a difference. And we do it together.
From some small befriender groups to an organisation that covers four counties, Mind BLMK has kept our local focus at the heart of our work. We talk to people, go out and share our passion and help change our local communities for the better.
Life changing… and life saving
Last year, we provided over 100,000 hours of support to thousands of local people. People accessing our service and support say that we are there when others aren’t, that we listen and that we help them develop the tools to move forward in their lives. We truly do change lives.
Mind BLMK works with a wide range of partners – local councils, CCGs, companies and schools. We would love to see if we can work with you too.
