Imagine has spent the last four decades working to improve the opportunities available for people suffering mental ill-health.  With an ethos of “positive risk taking”, Imagine has developed a wide range of services from social inclusion and housing to vocational and user-led projects.

Our Mission

Imagine has a positive approach to mental health and works to promote opportunities for people to live a full and independent life.

What we do

Today more than 1000 people use Imagine’s services in Merseyside, London, Greater Manchester and Cumbria.

Imagine’s directory of services includes: Accommodation, Advocacy, Befriending, Educational & Volunteering, Employment & Retention, Floating Support, Forensic, Mainstream, Outreach, Peer Support, Recovery Support Planning, Social Inclusion & Independent Living, Time Banking, User-Led Groups & Drop-ins, and Women Only Services.

During 2013, Imagine has been recognised for its work in the Women Only Services and Befriending Services.

The Liverpool Befriending Service received accreditation in May as an Approved Provider for safe and effective practice from the Mentoring & Befriending Foundation.

In July, the Women Only Services won in the category for “Best Practice in High Intensity Services” at the Mental Health Providers Forum Awards.
