We are a free, confidential and non-judgmental service working in Stockton-on-Tees to help people find solutions to issues affecting their health and wellbeing.

The Stockton Service Navigation Project is funded by Stockton Borough Council and managed by The Pioneering Care Partnership. The project has 2 distinct strands of work throughout:

  1. The Signposting Service- Working with any one over the age of 16 who is experiencing or is at risk of developing mild to moderate health issues or reduced wellbeing due to circumstances in their lives for which they need help, advice or support. The project works to assist individuals in connecting with the appropriate sources of support in order to improve their longer term health and wellbeing..

  2. Health and Wellbeing Programme- A series of classes, courses and projects aimed at teaching life, employment and health knowledge to clients to ensure they reach their maximum potential. This can include areas such as healthy eating, mental and physical wellbeing, confidence building and physical activity
