COMMUNITY NAVIGATOR

It can be hard to know what’s going on in your local area and how to access the support and services you need. This becomes especially difficult when our lives are changing, for example after a fall that knocks our confidence or after the death of a loved one.

Our Community Navigator projects work in the South West and South East of Edinburgh and if you’re over 65, we’ll support you to find out what’s on near you and how you can access the support you need in the way you want it.

Our staff and the teams of friendly local volunteers will support you to find out what’s on in your local area and how you can access the support you need, in the way you want.

We publish twice-yearly ‘Discover’ magazines specific to South West and South East Edinburgh. They highlight how to access support and services and what you can expect when you do. They’ll also give you ideas about activities, groups and events available in your area that you may also enjoy.

We hold informal information stations across South West and South East Edinburgh local supermarkets, post offices, GP surgeries or libraries. If you have ideas of where we should hold an information station, please let us know. The information stations will not only include a friendly face but also a wealth of knowledge about the services, groups and activities in your area. Get in touch with us to find out where you can meet us in the near future!

We know that it can be hard to approach people about the support you need, so we can also contact you at home.

Would you like to receive our free ‘Discover’? Let us know and we can add your name to the subscription list.

There are other ways you can get involved with us. As well as volunteering opportunities, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Is there a topic you would like to see in the next issue of 'Discover'? Or maybe you know of local groups that we could help promote.

Get in touch!
