Social Prescribing - Link Worker

Salary: 20k - 22,462k pending on experience

Hours : Full Time 37h per week. Permanent subject to funding

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the new Social Prescribing service in South Gloucestershire working with GP practices as part of Primary Care Networks!

 

Social prescribing is a way for GP practices to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

 

Southern Brooks Community Partnerships and Developing Health and Independence are working in partnership across South Gloucestershire to deliver this service, combining strong community development practices and community knowledge with social prescribing expertise and experience.

 

About you

 

You will have a genuine interest and passion to empower people and help them access community activities. You will make one-to-one connections with people in their local GP practices, working as part of the team with multi-disciplinary colleagues and may visit people in their homes when needed.

At least 2 years’ paid and/or voluntary experience of working with people with health and social needs or community – based work with socially excluded groups is required.
