Following discussions with Staff, service users and commissioners, we are delighted to confirm that four of your Northamptonshire local minds have decided to merge together to form one larger organisation. These are:
Corby (and surrounding villages)
Northampton & District (includes Brackley, Daventry & Towcester)
We will, of course, continue to work closely with Kettering Mind and hope to strengthen our formal collaborations in projects, bids and tenders as we move forward.
We believe the merger will deliver on the following benefits (please click to enlarge):
The new organisation will start to come together in the Spring and the full transition will take place over 12 months. We do not anticipate any interruption to our service delivery, and we have clearly stated that we will not be reducing front line staff, as part of this process.
