The Conduit Consortium is the first mental health consortium of its kind in Leicester. Conduit consists of four trusted, specialist support providers: Enable, Norton House, National Autistic Society and Network For Change.
The mental health support services provided by the consortium enables individuals with identified support needs to maintain their tenancies and assists them to benefit from community facilities, and social support.
The Conduit journey began in 2007 as a result of meetings between Leicester City Council’s then Supporting People Team and mental health support providers. The strategic review of floating support offered organisations the opportunity of putting formal partnership arrangements in place. Thus began a process that ultimately brought together all four organisations in to Conduit. Together the four organisations bring their strengths and expertise to the table leading to better outcomes for service users.
