What the project does

          • Navigators: front line workers assigned to individual service users to provide intensive support.
          • Associate navigators: front line workers with lived experienced employed under a two-year fixed term contract plus training up to NVQ Level 3
          • Volunteers: a volunteer coordinator oversees the training and induction of volunteers that assist navigators and help with therapeutic activities.
          • Therapeutic activities: drop in sessions teaching life skills and group social activities
          • Personalisation fund: one-off grants for items such as haircuts, clothing and mobile phones
          • Housing First
          • Lived experience ‘Multiple Disadvantage Friendly’ accreditation scheme: organisations are assessed and then an agreed action plan is drawn up to ensure there is true co-production of service design  and that service users feel staff genuinely understand what it is they need.
