About Age UK Lambeth

We support older people in Lambeth to live enriched, productive and purposeful lives: challenging the stigma of ageing, reducing social isolation and ensuring they get the right support at the right time. We are kind, person-centred and outcome-focused - finding solutions that work by listening, being flexible and including older people in delivering services. 

What you’ll be doing? 

You will be part of the MYcommunity Linkworkers team. Your main role will be to:  

  • Provide personalised brief intervention and social prescribing support to individuals, their families and carers.

  • Meet clients on a one-to-one basis, making home visits where appropriate and allowing clients the time and space to discuss ‘what matters to me.

  • Provide person-centred support to enable clients to identify their health and wellbeing needs and goals. Co-produce support plans with clients to discuss what’s important, where they would like to be in the future and how we can support them to achieve this. 

  • Manage and prioritise a caseload to ensure clients' needs, priorities and urgent support are met.

  • MYcommunity Lambeth works in partnership with a large number of statutory and community services and organisations across the borough. You will link clients with appropriate services to meet their needs. It is vital to have a strong understanding of when it is necessary to refer someone back to health care professionals/ agencies when the client’s needs are beyond the scope of the MYcommunity team.

What you need to bring

  • Able to write compelling communications to advocate for your clients. 

  • Able to work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders 

  • Able to analyse data and create engaging reports 

What you’ll benefit from

  • Generous pension provision - 7% employer contribution

  • 26 days holiday a year rising to 31 days after 5 years

  • A great staff culture with kindness at its heart

 

Job closing on 12th June 2024. Interviews will take place on 19th June 2024.
