Outreach Worker – Home Plus (Leeds)
The award of further funding for our Home Plus (Leeds) service helping to prevent falls and cold related health conditions, delivered in partnership with Groundwork NEWY and Age UK Leeds, has provided a fantastic opportunity to recruit an Outreach Worker to engage with BAME communities and those living in the most deprived areas of Leeds to promote awareness of the Home Plus service, and remove barriers to accessing Home Plus and other health and wellbeing services. As a member of the Home Plus team, you will build relationships with a range of people and organisations, with the aim of increasing referrals to the Home Plus service. You will support promotional activity, including involvement in an exciting new project providing an information and advice hub for patients and their families/carers in St James Hospital.
We are looking for a highly motivated individual who has experience of outreach work within deprived and BAME communities, the ability to build positive relationships and be a positive advocate for our Home Plus service.
If you are a proactive individual, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, a flexible approach, and are passionate about tackling inequality and putting people at the heart of service delivery to improve health and wellbeing, we would like to hear from you.
