Over the past few weeks we have been encouraging Northampton Community Organisations to compete a template which enables your organisational details to be placed within the new My Health and Care Directory (which is also known as MiDoS). This Directory can be used by members of the public and practitioners in Health, and is a great way of raising your profile.


The template can be found here and should take about 10 minutes to complete.

To encourage you to complete this template your organisation will be entered into a random prize draw, the first 2 being drawn each receiving £500.00 for your cause.
This applies to Northampton Groups only.
Good luck…….

MiDoS or My Health and Care Directory is a single truth database used by practitioners (GPs, Social Workers or Social Prescribers for example) and members of the public when they need to find local services or activities to meet a need or support them in some shape or form.

Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire and the other Local Infrastructure Organisations across the County have been charged with ensuring that as many Voluntary or Community Organisations find a place on this database. This work will commence in January of 2021, and will run for several months.

*All groups that offer help and support to people’s physical and/or mental wellbeing, from Carers groups to walking groups to art centres are welcome to add their details to the directory.

For groups in Northampton, you will be contacted by our own Katy Ellis and you will be asked to complete a simple template. This template can then be returned and VIN have responsibility for ensuring your organisational details are entered onto MiDoS correctly.

You can download the form here.  Please return to - katy.ellis@voluntaryimpact.org.uk

If you do not wish to have these details entered please let Katy know when she initially contacts your organisation.

For information, the other Local Infrastructure Organisations participating in this venture are:

South Northamptonshire Volunteer Bureau

Groundwork Northants

Corby Community Voluntary Service

Volunteer Centre Daventry

Nene Valley Community Action

The work is being funded by Northamptonshire Adult Social Services.
