The Bureau works with the belief that all members of the community will have both support needs of their own and the capacity to support others at various times in their lives – in some cases simultaneously. It is our mission to identify and link together community needs and solutions to enable people to live independently and improve the quality of life for local communities.
The Bureau will be working within the community to build on existing partnership work of Action Together, PC Refurb and The Bureau on Digital Wellbeing. This work has been piloted for the last 12 months and this is an exciting opportunity to get in at the delivery phase of this project.
Tameside and Glossop’s Digital Wellbeing Programme is split into two delivery projects; first being access to digital devices and increased digital skills funded by the CCG and delivered by PCRefurb, the second being access to digital healthcare apps also funded by the CCG and delivered by The Bureau. These two elements are interdependent, and it is essential that they work together as one programme, and therefore we see PCRefurb as a key delivery partner along with Action Together.
The successful candidate will bring together a team of skilled volunteers to support people to gain access to health-related digital apps, to make accessing health information easier for all, including those who are generally hard to reach or digitally excluded.
Digital health and wellbeing sessions will be delivered, including 1-2-1, group sessions and drop-ins, with the aim of increasing general digital confidence, increasing uptake of digital apps to self-manage health and create pathways to access digital services.
The successful candidate will build, maintain and expand partnerships, both new and existing, while bringing together knowledge from partners and putting this into action.
