North Northumberland Voluntary Forum has been awarded some funding from the Big Lottery to make connections to increase wellbeing and good mental health in north Northumberland. Working collaboratively and with an office base in Berwick, the post-holder will operate within the north with two aspects to the work:
- Identifying schemes and groups where wellbeing is being enhanced, making connections between them and encouraging development of new groups, preferably sustainably, and on an asset based community development basis
- Providing individual, family and carer support and direction to available wellbeing projects, liaison with statutory and commissioned and other services.
There will be some evening and weekend work and support will be provided through a Steering group and with individual supervision.
This is a new post and a new role and some flexibility will be required as the project develops.
