Do you have great listening and communication skills?

Have you got experience of helping others and a passion for supporting people through information, advice and guidance?

If you have good local knowledge of community activities and the initiative to find out more, then being a social prescribing community link worker could be the great new role for you.

You will need to be organised, able to manage a caseload, have experience of working with local community groups, have sound IT skills, be able to keep good records and ideally have managed volunteers before.

This is an exciting opportunity to join two innovative organisations who are working together to improve the well-being of local people in Tamworth.


Social prescribing can help to strengthen community resilience and personal resilience, and reduces health inequalities by addressing the wider determinants of health, such as debt, poor housing and physical inactivity, by increasing people’s active involvement with their local communities. Social Prescribing particularly works for people with long-term conditions (including support for mental health), for people who are lonely or isolated, or have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.
