Community Asset Navigators Programme (CANs)

Bolton's Community Asset Navigator programme is a key element of Bolton's Locality Plan and a key enabler for social prescribing in Bolton.  The programme promotes self-care and compliments medical interventions.  It is delivered by a partnership of organisations within Bolton's community and voluntary sector.

Community Asset Navigators connect health and care professionals and members of the community with the vast range of activities and services within the community and voluntary sector.  We support people to have strength based conversations and access social and non medical interventions to improve their heath and well being.
