Pioneering teams of people come together to make up the WY-FI Project, supporting people with multiple needs and aiming for policy and system change.
Teams of Navigators support WY-FI beneficiaries and are based in each locality: Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield. Navigators are service neutral and build trusting relationships with beneficiaries so that beneficiaries can re-engage with services and receive person-centred support.
Peer Mentors work with the Navigators to support beneficiaries and are voluntary roles. To find out more about becoming a Peer Mentor visit our ‘Opportunities in WY-FI‘ page.
Over the course of the project specialists have provided targeted engagement support for:
- people from BME communities
- prison leavers, and around
- education, training and employment
