Welcome to the Community Navigation service

Established in August 2014, Community Navigation is a social prescribing service operating in partnership with GP surgeries across Brighton and Hove. 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 onwards 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.

We are recruiting for volunteers!
