Enriching the lives of people with mental health problems


Gardiner Hill Foundation official charity raising funds f


Navigo's official charity is The Gardiner Hill Foundation

It's set up to enhance and enrich the lives of people with mental health problems.

Gardiner Hill. Why is it called that? Well, the charity takes its name from a local doctor - Robert Gardiner Hill - who championed the rights of people with mental health problems in the 1800s.

  • As well as promoting good mental health, the foundation works alongside and supplements essential mental health services.
  • We also help people with mental health problems to live independently and we support education, training and employment opportunities.
  • We’ve partnered with Thorpe Park in Cleethorpes to offer a deluxe caravan at a reduced price to Navigo service users, carers, community members and staff, so they can relax, unwind and enjoy a much-needed break.
  • Our team of trustees and support staff are volunteers, which means donations go to supporting our valuable work.
