Join us for a free online event exploring the role of specialist multiple disadvantage workers, often referred to as navigators.
Navigators are service-neutral members of staff who support people facing multiple disadvantage with navigating the complex system of services available to them and securing help that meets their needs and goals. This event will reflect on the skills and competencies required for these specialist roles, as well as what support is needed for these workers to be effective. This will include:
- A presentation by CFE Research of the findings from their recent Fulfilling Lives national evaluation briefing on workforce development: “What makes an effective multiple disadvantage navigator?”;
- Insight from Opportunity Nottingham, a specialist multiple disadvantage service;
- Hearing from people with lived experience of multiple disadvantage and receiving support from Opportunity Nottingham.
Audience: This webinar is aimed at services who have or are looking to develop specialist multiple disadvantage roles within their organisations.
Please note that it is PDU policy that people with lived experience are invited to participate in our events.
Attendance to this event is free of charge, but advance booking is essential. The session will take place over Zoom. Please make sure you can access this software before booking.
