Community Navigation

With our guidance and practical support, we'll help you identify the services, groups and activities that will help improve your health, wellbeing and confidence in Southampton.


If you're isolated or experiencing any kind of wellbeing issue, it can feel overwhelming to try and find services, groups or activities that may make you feel better.

Our Community Navigators understand the difficulties you may be experiencing and know what it's like to experience mental health issues. We use our experiences, insights and community knowledge to give you the information you need to get connected and start feeling better.

Our help is free and we work in partnership with other groups and organisations to help you get practical help and support that's right for you. 

 We can help you find:

  • activities and groups to improve your wellbeing
  • one-to-one sessions
  • explore activities
  • opportunities to get active 
  • ways to expand your social network and meet new people
  • understand your support network better and link with people with similar interests

Community Navigation is commissioned by Southampton City Council and Southampton Clinical Commissioning Group as part of of collaborative community development service, SO:Linked.
