Position as Community Wellbeing Officer
This is an exciting opportunity to work with vulnerable individuals who experience a range of long term conditions and disabilities in North Tyneside who require the support of Adult Social Care services.
The role of a CWO is to assess individual need under the Care Act and assist people in recognising and managing their own needs wherever possible in order to maximise their independence and choice. This will involve drawing upon the support of families, informal carers and communities to ensure that individuals remain safe and enjoy a better quality of life. Where informal services are unable to meet the needs of very vulnerable people services will be organised to maintain their support so skills in assessing and planning support for such individuals and their families will be a necessary skill to fulfil this role. A knowledge of the needs of vulnerable individuals who live with illness and disability will be an important quality to bring to this post as will an understanding of the needs of carers and the local communities which we serve.
We are looking for people with the right qualities to undertake this role so a compassionate but resilient personal approach will be important in coping with this demanding role. The post does not require a social work qualification but a knowledge and interest in social care practice and developments will be an asset.
