An exciting opportunity to join a new team to support people affected by socio-economic deprivation via local GP practices
About the project
The Community Links Worker programme aims to support people to live well by strengthening connections between community resources and primary care. It’s funded by Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership’s Integration Joint Board (IJB) and delivered in partnership with GP practices and the 3rd sector.
About the role
Working in select GP surgeries in Falkirk East (Grangemouth) and Falkirk Central you will provide one-to-one person-centred support to people in contact with the GP practice team. You will work with individuals to enable them to identify personal outcomes and priorities for their health and wellbeing and link them to local and national support services and activities.
You will have experience of working with people who are experiencing complex social and emotional circumstances, and a strong understanding of the challenges faced by people living in areas of deprivation. You will use your excellent interpersonal skills to deliver effective one-to-one work as well as make connections with other organisations.
How we will support you
We will encourage you to be creative and innovative in your approach to supporting people.
You will be part of a small team, who will support you develop and grow in your role and have a supportive line manager.
You’ll also have access to wider Cyrenians support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.
At Cyrenians we tackle the causes and consequences of homelessness. We understand that there are many routes into homelessness, and that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to supporting people towards more positive and stable futures. That’s why all our work is values-led and relationships-based.
• Compassion: We believe that everyone should have the chance to change, no matter how long that might take.
• Respect: We believe in tolerance, acceptance, valuing diversity and treating each other as equals.
• Integrity: We are committed to the highest quality of work, grounded in honesty, generosity, sincerity and professionalism.
• Innovation: We are willing to take risks, challenge convention and be creative in our search for new ways of working, in particular by taking account of the environmental impact of our decisions.
Recruitment for this role is open, i.e. there is no set closing date.
We will review applications as they are received and arrange to meet with candidates that we wish to take forward (usually within 7 days of receipt).
This vacancy opened on 23/09/2022 and will be closed once we have appointed.
