We require a full time member of staff to work on our Community Connector Service. You will support vulnerable adults, aged 18+, who are lonely or isolated to identify and access resources and opportunities within their local communities which will improve their connectivity and increase their social and support networks.
The focus of this service is on early intervention to promote health and wellbeing, help maintain independence and build resilience. An important aspect of this service is supporting volunteers who can provide additional time limited support as appropriate to help individuals achieve their personal goals.
If you have extensive experience of working face to face in a Social Care or Community setting and have an understanding of the issues facing people who are experiencing loneliness and isolation then we want to hear from you.
