Navigation Community of Practice (CoP) Portal

Does your role involve navigation?

Community navigation is the process of connecting citizens to support structures within public services, social services, healthcare or the wider community. It involves outreach, education, and technical assistance to increase awareness of, and participation in, local programs. When people come to your organization, they may have additional or complex needs that may require services and programs from two or more agencies. Do you ever wonder which organizations would be best to call to provide the best referral for the client? Do you wish you had one place to go to collaborate and find the best path for the client? The CoP Navigation Portal provides a secure space to work across partnerships to find the right resources and support for those who need help!

We invite all those who navigate on behalf of community members to join the Community of Practice Navigation Portal.
