As a Community Interest Company we have a voting membership. NAViGO is unique in that our service users, their carers and anyone with an interest in local mental health services can also join the membership and have the same rights as staff members.
What does the community membership do?
The NAViGO membership get to have their say on how our services are run. This can be done in a number of different ways:
- They elect four community membership representatives who sit on the NAViGO Membership Board. One of the four also sits on the CIC Board. Click here to see who they are.
- They get an equal vote to staff on key decisions including how we spend any surplus we generate.
- Shaping the future of our organisation: we want community member opinions on everything and anything to do with our services. This can be feedback via the representatives or directly to any member of the senior management team.
Everyone should be able to have a voice when it comes to the services we provide. We want to provide services in partnership with our users and the membership is the way in which we can do this. It is crucial that everyone who comes into contact with us is aware of the opportunity to join the membership, even if they choose not to participate.
Not only do people get a say in how our services are run, but they also receive a number of local benefits available exclusively to our members.
Once an application is approved, members will receive a welcome pack detailing these benefits along with a NAViGO pen, bag and badge.
A number of local benefits are also available to our community members.
