Age UK West Sussex and Age UK Brighton and Hove have recently merged. We deliver a range of services and activities to meet vulnerable people’s needs. Our aim is to promote the well-being of all older people and make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience and enable vulnerable people to flourish.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Primary Care Networks communities (PCN) throughout Horsham & Mid Sussex (formally Communities of Practice) and we are looking to recruit two Social Prescribers to cover the Horsham and East Grinstead area. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who enjoy working with vulnerable people to enable them to adopt an independent lifestyle. You will need to be an organised person with good administration, observation and communication skills.
The Social prescriber will work within a multidisciplinary team supporting clients to navigate their way around Health, Social Care and Voluntary Sector Services to access community based solutions to improve their quality of life.
The role may include working with volunteers to provide clients with the information to identify solutions to their circumstances and bring about the changes necessary to improve their health, wellbeing. They will support the Senior Social Prescriber to run peer support groups.
