Job description

Connection Support is a local charity working in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Milton Keynes for the past 25 years. We have an excellent track record of delivering high quality services for the communities we serve. This new Social Prescribing service will be delivered by the Community Link Worker working from GP surgeries in the Chalfont Primary Care Network (PCN) area.

Social prescribing can help to strengthen community resilience and personal resilience, and reduces health 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. It particularly works for people with long-term conditions (including support for mental health), for people who are lonely or isolated, or have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

Key Responsibilities

  • Take referrals from GP practices within a primary care network in year 1 and expand the service to a wide range of other referrers from year 2.
  • Provide personalised, holistic support to individuals, their families and carers to take control of their wellbeing, live independently and improve their health outcomes.
  • Develop trusting relationships by giving people time and attention to their priorities and ‘what matters to me’.
  • Co-produce a personalised support plan to improve health and wellbeing, introducing or reconnecting people to community groups and statutory services.
  • Managing and prioritising your own caseload, in accordance with the needs, priorities and any urgent support required by individuals on the caseload.
  • To refer people back to other health professionals/ agencies, when what the person needs is beyond the scope of the Community Link Worker role.

Use of a vehicle is essential.
