NB Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic this opportunity has changed. Volunteers are still required but the role involves running errands, making visits and calls. Some tasks can be done from home. Get in touch to find out more.
- Can you commit at least 2 hours per week?
- Do you live, work or volunteer in Camden?
- Would you like to support people in your community to improve their health and their access to services that will help them to maintain good health and wellbeing?
- Do you want to develop experience and skills in the field of public health?
Voluntary Action Camden (VAC) is offering free Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) training to those who want to volunteer their time to become Community Health Advocates for a new Care Navigation and Social Prescribing service in Camden. VAC will be running the Community Links part of this service, signposting residents to community based activities and dealing with more formal referrals where community based activities are needed alongside clinical care.
Volunteers will have access to other health related training, and will be part of a large multi-disciplinary team that meets monthly to develop the service and explore health related issues. After 3 months, active volunteers will have opportunities to take up occasional paid sessional work alongside their volunteering. The role can be used to gain useful skills and experience for a health related career.
In return for your commitment to the project we offer support, out of pocket expenses and other professional development opportunities.
