CVS Inverclyde is a partner in Inverclyde’s Third Sector Interface. CVS aims to support the third sector to deliver the best outcomes for Inverclyde by providing practical support and improving the strategic environment for the sector.
CVS Inverclyde has a mission to support communities and voluntary organisations improve the lives of Inverclyde’s people. We support local people to volunteer, bring communities together, strengthen voluntary organisations and champion the role of civil society in public planning.
After nearly ten years our current Chief Executive is moving on to a new post. We are now looking for a new leader with the vision and skills to take the organisation forward. The organisation has enjoyed a significant period of growth in capacity and reputation.
The Community Link Worker programme is funded by Inverclyde HSCP and delivered in partnership with GP Practices to support people to live well through strengthening connections between community resources and primary care.
The Community Link Worker will provide a person-centred service that is responsive to the needs and interests of a GP practice population. They will support them to identify issues that affect their ability to live well. Taking a person-centred approach, the post holder will support individuals to help them identify personal outcomes and priorities that they would like to address, to overcome any barriers to addressing these and to link them to local and national support services and activities.
The Community Link Worker will support the existing GP practice team to become better equipped to match local and national support services to the needs of individuals attending for health care. They will also build relationships and processes between the GP practice and community resources, statutory organisations, other health services and voluntary organisations.
