Job description

 Care Network Cambridgeshire are supporting various PCNs in Cambridgeshire to recruit for Social Prescribing Link Workers.  Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing through referral to ‘link workers’ who give time, focus on ‘what matters to me’ and take a holistic approach to an individual’s health and wellbeing, connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support. Link workers also support existing groups to be accessible and sustainable and help people to start new community groups, working collaboratively with all local partners. Social prescribing link workers will work as a key part of the primary care network (PCN) multi-disciplinary team, helping PCNs to strengthen community and personal resilience and reducing health and wellbeing inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical inactivity, by increasing people’s active involvement with their local communities. When applying please state which PCN you are applying to,  and send your CV and a covering letter showing how you meet the points in the person specification.
