Information for commissioners

Imagine was established by Liverpool for Mental Health in the early 80s and now has a
significant presence across the North West of England and London.

Currently, we provide 19 separate services generating contractual income of £4.85m from 24
different public sector bodies. These services support 1,550 service users with almost 250,000
support hours across 29 sites. In order to deliver these services we employ 215 individual staff
(185.5 full time equivalent) and 113 volunteers.

In addition to contractual income from support contracts, Imagine generates a further
£1.3m from housing related activities covering almost 200 properties in Merseyside. We
have agreements to manage the properties with nine different landlords, both Private and
Registered Social Landlords. Since 2013 we have also converted ten of our own properties for
supported occupancy to supplement this portfolio.
