Carole is the new Community Link Worker, to promote and provide the community link of the Social Prescribing service for the Goole and Howdenshire area (shared with Carole Johnson).
The service will take referrals (for those aged 18 & over) from local GP practices, who for whatever reason may benefit from social and community based support.
There is no defined 'reason', but it could include people with anxiety, lack of confidence, low self esteem, isolation or those coping with bereavement, unemployment, carer responsibilities, pressures of parenthood or a change in circumstances.
Carole will offer a confidential and person-centred approach, including time to listen, to support and offer choices. It takes a holistic approach, focusing on the individual and considering the social rather than medical aspects of 'health and wellbeing'.
The ultimate aim is to enable each person to consider and explore other ways of improving their life and wellbeing.
Referrals via the GP can be made via the email: email@example.com (where they will be allocated to the appropriate Community Link Worker)
