Community navigators in Cambridgeshire

Helping you find activities and services to live a happier, healthier and more independent life.

Cambridgeshire’s team of volunteer Community Navigators help improve the health, wellbeing and independence of older and vulnerable people. Whatever the situation, they will do their utmost to find a solution. Examples include:

  • car schemes and help with transport;
  • social groups and activities;
  • befriending schemes; and
  • practical help around the home.

They may help you find solutions so you can feel safer and more connected to your community, or make sure you are able to stay independent and healthy. If you are worried about taking the next steps, they are happy to make phone calls with you on your behalf.

The Community Navigator offices across Cambridgeshire will match you with a local volunteer who has been police-checked, trained and knows what services and activities are available in your area. They can meet you in your home, locally or at a drop-in session.
