Care Network Cambridgeshire

Initially set up by a local vicar’s wife in response to the lack of support for people after a hospital stay, Care Network Cambridgeshire now has over 300 local volunteers supporting older and vulnerable people in their homes or through community groups. 

Our Help at Home service provides support after people are discharged from hospital, or at other difficult times, doing tasks such as collecting prescriptions, monitoring wellbeing and practical jobs. This short-term voluntary support helps people 'back on their feet’ through practical and emotional support, as well as helping to identify further needs that the Community Navigators can take forward.

Community Navigators is a signposting and information service for older people, helping them to access services and local activities that they may find useful or enjoy.  Whatever, the questions, our volunteers are trained, resourced and capable of finding the information people need to access the appropriate services.
