Volunteering in & around Hungerford

Welcome to Eight Bells Community Strength

Community Strength, is community based support that will be provided by Community Navigator volunteers to prevent and reduce social isolation throughout West Berkshire.  It will encourage people of all ages to look after themselves, live independently and have a good quality of life. We will also support individual’s mental health and wellbeing.  We also want to help communities to develop their own strength and resilience so that they can thrive.

Through a referral process, we will support adults who are at risk of loneliness and isolation, have long term medical conditions, suffer with mental ill health, and have a physical or learning disability.

Community Navigators are volunteers who have a good local knowledge and a clear understanding of what is going on in their local community.   They will be able to signpost and support local people to local services or join community-based activities, taking the time to understand the needs and interests of the person they are helping.  Community Navigators will encourage people to recognise their own strengths to help make better choices and grow confidence.
