We are tasked to perform a variety of duties with the aim of improving the health and well-being of the communities we serve. We play a significant role in increasing health promotion, through a range of activities including outreach assessments, community education, signposting, informal counselling, and advocacy.
We are a bridging role between health, social services and community facilitates. We are committed to improving access and support to provisions and services that meet the needs of the local community. This is an exciting opportunity to shape a new way of working with the community and being proactive in finding solutions to challenges families and individuals face on a daily basis.
Our main responsibilities will be making monthly household visits (or more frequent if the household need requires it) within a defined geographical area (up to a maximum of 120 households within defined micro area). Our residential visit will be to assess the health and social needs of everyone within a household, providing a proactive and holistic approach when supporting the local community.
I am Bronagh, and may be posting leaflets through your door, which means I will be back soon to introduce myself. You may also see me helping at the local foodbank or pop-up social hubs. I will be wearing our CHWW uniform so you can easily identify me as working. I can’t wait to meet you in the future, and see how best I can help you, or simply catch up in a public space to chat about life over a cuppa!
