ABOUT THE ORGANISATION
Equal Lives is a membership organisation led by people who face disabling barriers, and we advocate the social model of disability. Our advice and information services provide disabled people with the help they need to secure their rights and to access services. We also provide advocacy services to enable disabled people to have their voices heard. We support people to empower themselves to live independent lives and we are very involved in campaigning on issues that affect disabled people. We try to influence policy decisions at local and national level to improve the lives of disabled people.
ABOUT THE ROLE
This role is based in our Welfare Rights and Advice team. The role of the Living Well Worker is to support the provision, coordination and development of Social Prescribing: supporting individuals and families to access support within their local community from community, voluntary and public-sector organisations.
The Living Well Worker will contribute to the wider early help and prevention approach, by supporting the development of strong, resilient and sustainable communities.
The role requires close working with health and social care providers to maximise the individual’s potential to reduce or delay more formal packages of care and to reduce demand in primary care and other statutory services.
