Please note that we are currently on approximately a 5-6 month waiting list for this service. We will be in contact with the person as soon as possible after we have received their referral (we aim within 2 weeks) to say hello, introduce ourselves and to find out a bit more about you. Our community programme is free to access and the vast majority of activities have no waiting period.

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.
