Community Navigators are a fairly new free service, having been set up in 2012.
They are local volunteers or members of organisations who help older people find their way to activities or services which they would enjoy or find useful.
A description of what Community Navigators do is HERE but the kinds of things they can help with are;
A community car scheme for a lift to activities and appointments
A local friendship club, lunch club or activity group
Modifications to home or mobility aids
Financial health check to maximise income
Help at home to support through an illness or with a one off task
Guidance to appropriate voluntary organisation services
A copy of their brochure is HERE
