Independent financial advisor Eamonn Dorling is attending the Community Navigators launch at Wisbech library hosted by the Care Network of Cambridgeshire on Thursday, June 6.
The focus of the launch will highlight the valuable assistance provided by dedicated Navigators within the local community. This reflects the work Eamonn does as a financial adviser at Beacon Wealth Management Ltd.
This new meeting arrangement is one of the first of its kind in the area, with the Community Navigators scheme which went live earlier this month.
The project aims to co-ordinate existing networks of support by working closely with local communities to enable older people to find the assistance that they need. The scheme aims to develop over three years across the Cambridgeshire area, supported by local counsellors and dedicated members of the community.
Professionally, Eamonn is continuously engaging with some of the most vulnerable people in later life as recently shown by being welcomed into SOLLA (Society of Later Life Advisers), a group dedicated to helping people in advancing years. Eamonn is a Community Navigator and every Friday morning at the Whittlesey library, he provides information to anyone wanting to know what facilities are available locally.
“On most occasions I am asked whether there is any training available to help those that struggle with computers and new technology. Most of the time it is a case of putting the individual in touch with activities that can help their well-being and independence. Being a local resident for over 30 years I have connections that enable me to help them,” explained Eamonn.
Not only does Eamonn participate in local seminars about later life care, he also regularly competes in marathons for his selected charities. His most recent achievement was running for the Parkinson’s UK charity in aid of his very close friend who suffers from the disease.
