Show Notes

Eoghan interviews all of the key personnel involved with the Navigator project - an innovative intervention which aims to interrupt the corrosive cycle of violence, and support people to seek the help they need to get their lives back on track. 

The navigator project works in various hospitals in Scotland and they support people affected by violence back to the community and help to navigate them away from their chaotic lifestyles. It has been having an incredible impact in Scotland and we hope this success can spread to other areas in the UK

Special thanks to the two ‘patients’ who had the courage to share their experiences with the project. We are very grateful to them.
