Community Facilitation Service

How can the Community Facilitator help you?


NorthAbles Community Facilitation service helps people aged 16-35 who are finished at school to engage in their community. This is a mentoring service were a facilitator walks alongside you on a regular basis to reach your goals and support you to take part in the community. The service is led by you and centred around taking practical and realistic steps towards the goals we identify together at the beginning of our relationship. The facilitator will create a plan with you that will be regularly reviewed to ensure that a quality service meeting a purpose is delivered. The service is usually offered over a four to six-month time frame, and when we come to an end, you will be able to do what you want, when you want.

You know what you are passionate about, who you want to be and the life you want to lead - so we will work with you to make that a reality.
