The Young Adult Community Navigation services in partnership with organisations from the third sector provides emotional and practical support to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young adults aged 16-25.
Our Community Navigators work with young adults to offer an individually tailored service to meet their needs. They take a holistic, non-clinical approach and support young adults with their goals, including offering help with wellbeing, benefits, housing, employment, education and access to local services.
The service is provided by local voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, and supported by CNWL.
