About Our Mental Health Service

What is iDecide?

iDecide is a consortium of three Derbyshire based organisations who are working in partnership to deliver mental health supported housing services for Derbyshire County Council. The objective of iDecide is:-

“To be the provider of choice for supported housing and floating support services in Derbyshire, delivering choice, offering excellent and valued services to our clients, involving them in all areas of decision making with an overall aim to equip them with the skills and confidence to live independently”.

Who is in iDecide?

iDecide is a consortium between P3, Amber Trust  and Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health working together for a common goal in relation to mental health supported housing services for Derbyshire County Council. We each retain our separate identity and continue to provide a wide range of other services independently.

P3 (People, Potential, Possibilities)

P3 is a charity and social enterprise which has worked in Derbyshire for over 30 years, and which now works all over the UK dealing with social exclusion and homelessness, and creating opportunities for vulnerable and disadvantaged people;

Amber Trust

Amber Trust is a social care charity promoting mental wellbeing, providing support services to adults with mental ill health enabling them to live successfully in their local communities.  Based in Belper, Amber Trust has provided these services for over 30 years.

Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health

The Federation is now based in Darley Dale near Matlock; they also have a history of nearly 30 years of delivering community support and self-help group services and promoting independence for people with mental ill health.

Why form iDecide?

For many years the three partner organisations had been delivering mental health supported housing services for Derbyshire County Council, and came together in 2011 to be able to offer a locally based service for the future around ‘Delivering Choice in Derbyshire’. We recognise that we share common values based on:

  • Commitment to supported living and promoting independence
  • Putting clients at the centre of service planning and delivery
  • Offering choice to clients.

How do we work together?

P3 is the lead service provider. P3 are the single accountable service provider to Derbyshire County Council, and Amber Trust and Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health are sub-contractors who are in turn legally responsible for their service delivery to P3.

Our working is governed by a consortium agreement. We operate through a Consultative Governance Group, and service and client related sub-groups; an outline of our structure can be downloaded here (insert link to the Governance Management and Reporting Diagram in the Consortium Agreement).
