Please note that as of 25th January 2024 to April 2024, we will not accepting new referrals. If you have already made a referral, we will work with you as soon as we are able to. We are pausing referrals in order to be able to reduce the waiting time for the service once it reopens. Our decision to pause referrals for this 2-3 month duration was not taken lightly. We want to provide support that is responsive to people's lives and we have a much better chance of doing that if we take this time to resource the team. Our community programme is free to access and the vast majority of activities have no waiting period. Please do get in contact with us if you have any questions.

About this service

Who is it for?

The service is accessible to anyone over 18, living in Camden or having a GP in Camden. It is available regardless of eligibility for adult social care services and/or previous contact with mental health services.

What does it involve?

The service involves you working 1:1 with a member of our staff or volunteer team over a period of between 6 and 8 sessions. Sessions are usually 1 hour, and can take place at your home, at our community centre, or in a public space (such as a park, or a cafe). Our work is intentionally flexible, but we loosely provide what we call a combination of ‘practical and emotional support’. You may spend the time working on PIP forms, housing, going for a walk, visiting a cafe, speaking about what you are going through at the moment, or something else entirely. It is up to you and your key worker to decide the structure of the sessions, and how you can best use the time in a person-centred way that takes into account who you are and where you are at.

At the end of our time together, we’ll work to help you figure out next steps, and what sort of support you might benefit from if you need further help – within or outside of Likewise.

How do I access this service?
