Neighbourhood Navigation Networks

Shoreditch Trust has a track record for developing community navigation roles and networks in City & Hackney; including Health Trainers, Health Coaches, Community Coordinators and Community Connectors, working alongside local VCS partners and commissioners to help shape the local services and personalised care.


Up until April 2024, Shoreditch Trust facilitated the Neighbourhood Navigation Networks. From April 2024, City & Hackney Neighbourhoods continue to work on promoting neighbourhoods and Community Navigation roles.

As the programme has come to an end the below is for information only:


Neighbourhood Navigation Networks (NNNs) are part of a series of pilots and improvements to create a cohesive model of community navigation in City & Hackney. They bring together frontline navigators to co-design network spaces, develop a vision, aims and objectives that include space for peer support, sharing expertise, skills and knowledge, collaborating to improve visibility and understanding of Community Navigation frontline roles and forging links with external expertise.

If you are a professional working in Hackney or the City in a role supporting residents, you are invited to join our Neighbourhood Navigation Networks.  Please contact to find out more.

The networks have been divided into 4 Neighbourhood Pairings; these are:

  1. Well Street Common & Hackney Marshes
  2. Hackney Downs & Clissold Park
  3. Shoreditch Park and City & London Fields
  4. Woodberry Wetlands & Springfield Park
