The Scottish Government is promoting social prescribing as a way of reducing or mitigating health inequalities, with a pledge to roll out 250 link workers nationally in the next few years. Social prescribing links people attending GP or other primary care services with local, often non-clinical, community resources.
Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health and Social Care Partnership (CSHSCP) has committed to the roll-out of the Community Link worker programme in the Partnership area and are now recruiting a Community Link Worker (CLW) to be based at the Ochilview Practice in Clackmannanshire.
They will be fully integrated in day-to-day work of the practice staff to inform and provide community connections to service users, will be supported by the CTSI/ SVE and will work with local volunteer Community Health Champions.
The Community Links Workers will help people to access the wide range of local support provided by Third Sector organisations, helping them to reconnect and understand how they can improve and sustain their own health and wellbeing.
