Community Navigators North


Community Navigators is a free signposting service for people over 50 in North Bristol.

We provide information on local services and support older people into social activities and volunteering opportunities in their local area to combat social isolation.

How does it work?

We have a team of friendly and experienced Navigators who can work with older people on a one-to-one basis, visiting them at home and supporting them to overcome barriers to getting out and about. Our extensive links with local organisations and groups enable us to provide personalised information and guidance on a range of interests including social activities, employability, learning opportunities, transport and more.

Community Navigators is a Bristol Ageing Better project, funded by The Big Lottery. We are working closely with Southmead Development Trust, Ambition Lawrence Weston, Avonmouth Community Centre and Shirehampton Community Action Forum to deliver the service across North Bristol.

Which areas do we cover?

Our Community Navigators work in Bishopston, Ashley Down, Cotham, Redland, Stoke Bishop, Sea Mills, Horfield, Lockleaze, Southmead, Westbury-on-Trym, Avonmouth, Lawrence Weston, Shirehampton, Henleaze, Henbury and Brentry.
