Multiple Needs Core Competency Framework

The framework underpins the successful and proven “Navigator Model”, which we’ve developed and tested during our six years of operation as part of the National Lottery Community Fund’s Fulfilling Lives Programme.

The framework is designed to be adopted by organisations who work with people experiencing multiple needs as a result of complex trauma.
