COMMUNITY NAVIGATORS 

Community Navigators are trained volunteers with previous experience of supporting people.

They work with a person to help them identify and access the right local groups and services. Navigators facilitate onward referrals by making arrangements on the person’s behalf as needed, filling in forms, making appointments and following up.

Around half the people we support are aged over 65 and many are experiencing social isolation or anxieties about their medical conditions or wellbeing in general. Community Navigation is a proven method of helping people improve their wellbeing and access the services and groups they want and need.

Contact Community navigators if you are feeling:

  • Isolation and loneliness
  • Anxiety, stress and depression
  • Housing, money and benefits issues
  • Work and unemployment
  • Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise and weight loss
  • Language and cultural barriers
