About this event

We are bringing together a broad range of stakeholders to shape a vision for community navigation in City and Hackney. This includes service users, those funding and delivering community navigation, people who refer to these services and voluntary sector organisations that navigators refer onto.

You play a key role within community navigation in Hackney and the City, and we hope you are able to join us to shape this work

Thursday 12th March – 1pm-5pm

St Joseph's Hospice, Mare Street, London E8 4SA

The output of the workshop will be a Theory of Change (i.e. a description of what we are trying to achieve, what helps and hinders that and how to go about it) plus a set of common outcome measures and quality standards for community navigation in City and Hackney.

This forms part of a broader strand of work being co-produced by community navigation providers to improve the coordination and integration of their work. Evaluation specialists Cordis Bright (www.cordisbright.co.uk) will be facilitating the workshop and a light lunch will be provided

What is community navigation?

We know that people's health and wellbeing is influenced by a complex range of physical, social and economic factors. community navigation describes a broad range of services that provide one-to-one, non-medical, person centred support. This involves a holistic conversation with an individual about what matters to them and then supporting them to access relevant services and activities in the community to improve their health and wellbeing (these might include medical and statutory organisations, but primarily are non-medical community based resources and networks). As such, effective navigation is a key element of delivering coordinated, person-centred care. City and Hackney has a wide range of these community navigation services (e.g. community connectors, social prescribers and wellbeing practitioners) and we want to build on this to ensure all local people who could benefit have access to the support they need.
