Trust Wide Enablement Partnership

Working across Barnet, Enfield and Haringey

We are excited to be working with Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust on the Trust Wide Enablement Partnership. The partnership seeks to build lasting cultural change within the Trust so that enablement becomes an integral part of the culture.

What is Enablement?

Enablement is an approach to delivering mental health services which focusses on empowering people to take control of their own mental health. Enabling services empower people by:

  • always aiming to do with people rather than to or for people;
  • focusing on what people can do rather than what they cannot do;
  • supporting people to develop skills to help themselves stay well;
  • working with the whole person, not just their diagnosis, including their own support networks.

What will the Enablement Partnership deliver?

The partnership sees Inclusion Barnet working alongside the Trust as a critical friend to develop a series of projects and a range of resources to create cultural change. The two main focuses of the partnership are around the recruitment, training and support of peer workers at the Trust, and developing the ways in which the Trust co-produces services in equal partnership with users of services.

The two-year contract, which began in March 2018, will not only deliver a series of co-produced projects across three London boroughs, but will also build the sustainable infrastructure needed to ensure that the enablement approach becomes embedded in the culture of the Trust.
