Do you want to have a direct impact on local community services? Are you passionate about supporting isolated or vulnerable adults?
Community Connections operates across the borough of Lewisham supporting isolated adults (18+) to access community support, services and activities. The project works on two fronts: Community Facilitators support isolated adults in one-to-one person-centred work to enable them to learn about, identify barriers to and ultimately access community activities and services. Alongside this, Community Development Workers work with the community to build and sustain those services and activities that support isolated adults.
Community Connections is run by a consortium of partners, of which Age UK Lewisham & Southwark (AUKLS) is the lead partner. This post is employed by AUKLS but will work collaboratively with the consortium to deliver a broad programme of support in Lewisham. You will have access to all of the training and support from AUKLS, in addition to opportunities to learn and grow through our partnership work.
This post is a 6 month contract.
