Contract, Temporary, Until 31 March 2021 with potential to extend Contract, Full-time
Job description

We are recruiting 3 Health & Wellbeing Co-ordinators to join our incredible Living Well service, which provides genuine, high impact person-centred assessment and action planning with older people to help them improve their overall health and wellbeing.

The Living Well service is Age UK Merton’s flagship wellbeing programme. We have developed the service over the last five years supporting 260 older people last year alone. With tangible outcomes for older people, you could be part of the growth of the service which helped 71% to feel more connected, 68% to feel more positive, 69% to be more active and 61% to manage their money better last year.

Given the significant impact of Coronavirus on older adults, Age UK Merton has been successful with a bid to extend the Living Well team in Merton until 31 March 2021. We will evaluate the success of the service, with a view to extending the service longer-term. 

This is an exciting time to join the organisation at a period of growth in size and reputation and an opportunity to be at the heart of Merton’s response to Covid-19. Join us now to be part of the journey and help older people to stay happy, active and independent.

Post title: Health & Wellbeing Co-ordinator (X3 roles)
