NAViGO’s official charity is the Gardiner Hill Foundation - a local charity 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 even 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.

Plus our team of trustees and support staff are volunteers, which means donations go to supporting our valuable work.

Get a grant

If you live with mental health problems - and have a care coordinator within NAViGO or a keyworker from another organisation -  you could get a grant from The Gardiner Hill Foundation.

You can apply for a grant yourself, or your carer or family member can submit an application on your behalf.


Get involved

If you would like to get involved with the charity or find out more about what we do, we’d love to hear from you.

You might even like to fundraise for us. You star! We’d love to know what you’ve got planned. Whether you fancy sitting in a bath of beans, running the Grimsby 10K or going full head shave – just let us know!

The information you send will be stored securely but you can read our full privacy policy for peace of mind
