Community Based Support will be provided by Community Navigators to prevent and reduce social isolation throughout West Berkshire. It will encourage people of all ages to look after themselves, live independently and have a good quality of life. We will also support individual’s mental health and wellbeing.
Community Navigators are volunteers who have a good local knowledge and clear understanding of what is going on in their local community. They will be able to signpost and support local people, who are referred to Eight Bells Community Strength, to local services or join community-based activities, taking the time to understand the needs and interests of the person they are helping.
