What is Wayfinder?

In partnership with the Together Network and Church Urban Fund, we are launching Wayfinder, a programme that is founded in recognition of the importance of relationships in breaking the cycle of homelessness.

Over the past 7 years, CUF has partnered with local community organisations and churches to support people as they find a route out of homelessness. We have found that social isolation is a huge barrier to full recovery, leaving many people alone as they experience the ups and downs of sustaining a home.

Wayfinder, responds to these learnings and focuses on building more effective and sustainable relationships with people in need – particularly those in new tenancies.

Through Wayfinder, local volunteers will be equipped by Transforming Notts Together through specific training to provide one-to-one support for people after a period of homelessness. This support could include practical guidance or assistance, being available as a listening ear, and coming alongside those participating in the programme.
