The role of CommunityLink workers
CommunityLink workers are there to offer individualised, personal support and motivation to adults across East Riding who may require personalised solutions to social, emotional or practical needs that will empower each individual person accessing the service to empower self, leading to improvements in their health and wellbeing.
We all have issues in our lives which may affect our health in some way. You may want to improve your confidence, improve the management of your financial position, work on a relationship, know where to go for information relating to social care, you may care for a loved one and need guidance to manage your own wellbeing, or just generally feel better about yourself.
We understand that there are many things that can be affect our ability to feel healthy and remain independent. CommunityLink workers will create individualised personal wellbeing plans.
Your personal wellbeing plan will be developed by you and your community link worker. The CommunityLink worker will offer support, guidance, help and motivation to proactively improve your wellbeing.
CommunityLink workers are friendly, understanding and supportive. They will help and encourage you to achieve your goals.
