Who are we?

Navigate is a small team of experienced facilitators and trainers. We run workshops and facilitate meetings to support groups and organisations to be more resilient and effective. We work with groups of all shapes and sizes: grassroots groups, co-operatives, NGOs, community projects and others working towards social and environmental justice. We used to be known as Seeds for Change Oxford.

What we offer

We’ll help you navigate the challenges you’re facing, both inside and outside your group, by tailoring our workshop to your group’s needs and responding to themes and issues as they arise. Drawing on our years of experience we can help your group work better together, find ways through conflict, and learn about power dynamics. We can also support you to cultivate sustainable working practices, design your strategy and make stronger decisions. Find out more about what we offer here.
