We are seeking a dedicated and compassionate Community Wellbeing Support Worker to join our Flintshire Wellbeing service.

This role does not provide direct basic care but is focused on motivating and supporting individuals to identify their own goals as well as developing self-management strategies to improve their health and wellbeing and maintain their independence.

This role will ensure that guided conversations are led by the individual and that they are at the center of everything we do.

This is a new service commissioned by Flintshire County Council on behalf of health and social care partners through the Welsh Government Regional Integration Fund.  The service has been commissioned to fill a gap identified within existing service provision.

The Flintshire Wellbeing service aims to support individuals for a period of up to 6 weeks following hospital discharge.  We work collaboratively with individuals to help them identify their strengths, overcome limiting beliefs, and develop practical strategies for achieving their goals at home and within their community.

A key element of this role will be to work with the individual and co-design a personalised action plan.

This approach aims to ‘enable people to be and to do what they have reason to value’.
