Starfish Health and Wellbeing provides a range of primary care psychological therapies service that offers support to people who are emotionally distressed and looks at how we can support them in their recovery.

Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing through referral to non-medical ‘link workers’ who give time, focus on ‘what matters to me’ and take a holistic approach, connecting people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

Link Workers will support existing groups to be accessible and sustainable working collaboratively with local partners.

Key tasks of the role include: taking referrals from a wide range of agencies, working with GP practices within primary care networks, hospital discharge teams, pharmacies, job centres etc to promote social prescribing and its role in self-management; providing personalised support to individuals, their families and carers to improve their health outcomes; help people identify the wider issues that impact on their health and wellbeing, such as debt, loneliness, unemployment etc;  working with individuals to co-produce simple personalised support plans, including helping people to gain skills for meaningful employment, where appropriate; supporting community groups to receive referrals; working collectively with all local partners to ensure sustainable community groups and with commissioners and local partners to identify unmet needs within the community; recruiting and developing a team of volunteers to provide ‘buddying support’ for people, starting new groups and finding creative community solutions to local issues, providing regular ‘confidence surveys’ to community groups receiving referrals, to ensure strength and sustainability and data capture.

The role will require the successful candidates to manage and prioritise their own caseload.

All Starfish appointments are subject to a six- month probationary period.
