Neighbourhood Networks

Charity description

Neighbourhood Networks logo
Through local networks of mutual
support, we will work with people in their neighbourhoods to live independently in their own homes, and to contribute to their communities.

The workof Neighbourhood Networks is based on a unique model called “Living Support Networks”. This is a model that delivers support flexibly and responsively to a group of some nine people who live within a reasonable distanceof one another. Each Network is facilitated by a part-time Community Living Worker recruited from the local neighbourhood and available during the day,evenings and weekends. Support is then negotiated, based on the needs ofindividuals and the group, and the availability of the Community Living Worker and
the Network Manager, who works full-time and typically covers three Network Areas.


The approach of Neighbourhood Networks emphasises the importance of
providing preventative models of support, and opportunities for mutual support,to vulnerable people who might otherwise receive no support at all and therebyrun the risk of entering significant and costly, but nonetheless avoidable crises
in their lives.
