New community navigators for people with learning disabilities

People over 18 who have a learning disability and are feeling low or lonely will now have some extra support from our new specialist Community Navigator service.

A community navigator will spend time getting to know the person, find out what they are interested in and then support them to get more involved in their community. They will also help with debt, benefit or housing issues, bereavement and help with getting into exercise.

Get support
Anyone can make a referral to the service, either for yourself or someone you know. Call Simone on 0117 440 9100, email community.navigators@nhs.net or visit communitynavigators.org.uk

Did you know that the Community Navigator service also supports people over 50?
