Dorset Early Help/POPP Wayfinders live and work locally to provide information and signposting to support and services for adults in their local communities
They work primarily with any adults who have an identified need or a concern that is reducing their ability to maintain their independence or quality of life whilst living in their own homes for as long as they wish to. Typically Wayfinders connect people with different sources and and types of support available in their community; this could include: social groups; community education groups; information and advice; self help/support groups; physical activities; learning opportunities; debt and benefit advice etc.
The Champions and Wayfinders programme is contracted out to Help and Care, and therefore supports capacity building within Dorset's Voluntary Sector.
