Nabida Care Management is an independent care provider who specialise in supporting people with mental health diagnosis and associated difficulties. Founded in 2011 the provision has proven successful and is now able to support people with a diversity of needs across two Northampton based sites.
The aim of Nabida Care Management is to support our service users to achieve an independent and fulfilling life.
Although pathways and outcomes are always person centred, we see this aim as being inclusive of sustainable daily living skills, meaningful activity and social inclusivity.
Nabida Care Management takes great care in their recruitment and support of staff members.
Nabida Care Management’s structure is inclusive of a Registered Service Manager, a Deputy Service Manager, StaR (Support Time and Recovery) Workers and Support Workers.
Within Nabida Care Management there is a diversity of experience, including statutory, third party and independent services, occupational therapy and psychiatric nursing. This collective experience is invaluable to the support provided and Nabida Care Management looks to enhance this through a proactive learning culture. As such as , all staff are involved in an ongoing program of service specific training, sourced from external providers, to help ensure the standards of best practice are exceeded. Such training is inclusive of:
Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults
Deprivation of Liberty
Data Protection and Confidentiality
As a basis all support staff are working towards, or hold, at least an NVQ level 3 qualification in Health and Social Care or complementary subject. Those above the NVQ level 3 requirement are offered an annual bursary for training or education in developing personal practice.
At the offer of employment, staff are referenced as to their person and are enhanced DBS checked by Nabida Care Management for suitability when working with vulnerable adults. The DBS certificate is renewed every 3 years.
The Nabida Care Management service has been created with a priority towards people with a mental health diagnosis or associated difficulties. It is understood that these terms are open to interpretation and Nabida Care Management welcomes this in accordance with its commitment to fair access.
Since opening there has been diversity to the people that have been supported by Nabida Care Management. Within this history, Nabida Care Management has frequently accepted referrals from forensic services and has supported people who are subject Section 17a or Section 41 of the Mental Health Act 1983 (amended 2007), and people who are entitled to Section 117 aftercare.

The support that Nabida Care Management offers is concordant with a ‘Person Centred’ model of care. Within the ambition of service user independence we believe it is essential that service users play an active role in identifying and expressing their needs so their unique support package can be developed. It is through this service user led ownership and personalisation of support that it is hoped the skills for independence become sustainable.
Although the full team is available services users will be dedicated a STaR Worker and support worker so that trusting and productive relationships can be encouraged. It will be with this dedicated team that the service user will work on such areas as:
How to integrate social and emotional strategies in to everyday living
Creating a better understanding of how their mental health may impact on everyday living and how best to manage this
Engagement with meaningful activity and occupation
Learning to manage their own medication
Model of Care: Recovery Star
To structure this approach Nabida Care Management is licensed to use the Recovery Star.
The Recover Star is an evidence based tool that, through dedicated research, has been designed to support and measure service user progress and change. The Recovery Star model is based on three principles: integration, collaboration and empowerment. As such, this model places the service user dynamically within the support provided and is in keeping with Nabida Care Managements insistence of remaining Person Centred.
The Star builds evidence and suggests opportunity within the following areas:
Managing mental health
Physical health and self-care
Identity & self-esteem
Trust and hope
Further information about the Recovery Star can be found on the Outcomes Star website:
Models of Care: WRAP
Nabida Care Management utilises WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plans) to aid service users to identify and effectively communicate their personal relapse indicators in relation to their mental health. These plans not only help the service users to progress towards their goals and independence but also help them to understand the triggers that could lead to a deterioration in their mental health.
By using WRAP plans and working together, service users are further empowered to take ownership of their recovery.
