Commissioned by the NHS, the Community Living Well (CLW) Navigation Service is part of the wider Community Living Well Service in Kensington and Chelsea. It provides information and practical help and support to people with mental health issues managed in primary care, regardless of their diagnosis.
What does CLW Navigation Service do?
CLW Navigation Service supports our clients by providing information and signposting, help with access to services, practical support on a range of issues such as access to social care and benefits and help with specialist support for housing, debt and legal advice.
We also help our clients by helping gain access to other services to improve physical and mental well-being and to develop social networks.
This service is run in partnership with St Mary Abbots Rehabilitation and Training (SMART) and Kensington and Chelsea Social Council.
How can CLW Navigation Service help me?
A Navigator can help you identify what help you most need. They will work with you to set out your options and explore what you would like to achieve.
Led by you, the Navigator will help create a plan to detail how your needs can be met, who can support you and how. We can give you practical support too; helping you to access the right services, based on your needs, preferences and options. Your Navigator will co-ordinate the care and support set up in your plan.
So, if you are feeling stuck and unable to get on with life and feel there are barriers to stop you moving on, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We work closely with talking therapies, GPs and a wide range of organisations in the area, including the employment service and peer support teams that are also part of Community Living Well.
