Clara Jones - Community Navigator
Clara helps people to access local activities, services and support within Merton in order to improve their health and wellbeing. Clara works primarily from the Nelson Health Centre and in particular as part of the Holistic Assessment and Rapid Investigation (HARI) team. Patients can be referred to HARI by their GP, and are mainly older adults, although this service can work with anyone over 18. HARI aims to keep patients well, promote independent living and empower patients to improve self-management of long term conditions. One aim of community navigation is to build a more supportive, inclusive and resilient community with strong, collaborative relationships and connections between a range of statutory and voluntary services in the borough. As the project progresses, Clara will be aiming to identify how community navigation could be developed and improved, using feedback from organisations and participants.
