Job description

Social prescribing enables people to take action to improve or sustain their quality of life based on what matters to them and their individual strengths. The Social Prescribing Link Workers connect people to community groups and agencies for practical and emotional support. Read more about the social prescribing service here.

The skill of the Social Prescribing Link Worker is to motivate people to take action to improve their mental/physical health and their lives. The Social Prescribing Link Workers will work as a key part of the primary care team helping to strengthen community and personal resilience and reduce health and wellbeing inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical activity (particularly for people with long-term conditions, including support for anxiety, for people who are lonely or isolated, or have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing).
