RAMH have been developing Social Prescribing in partnership with General Practitioners since October 2015. This role of this innovative and exciting Social Prescribing development is to facilitate a new way to access community support and opportunities for enhancing self-management skills for people who use services.  We are looking for individuals who have some experience and an understanding of working with people who may experience a lack of social connections evidenced by: loneliness, mental health problems and isolation, and who may also have a range of social problems. You will need to have an understanding of how to recognise and develop assets/strengths for people, and enabling approaches when working within local communities and how this can connect with people’s recovery journey.  You will be able to work independently from GP practices and be very pro-active in finding community resources and helping people access local services and activities to promote their sense of wellbeing. You will have the ability to sustain contact with individuals to assist them to maintain activities.  In addition you should be confident working closely with GPs, practice staff and community agencies.  You need to have a high level of IT proficiency, as you are required to record your work daily.  You will be required to contribute to a database of local resources, maintain accurate records and actively participate in evaluating, monitoring and reporting this innovative service.
