Scoping community links workers

| 0 comments

The Scottish Government has commissioned Voluntary Health Scotland to carry out a scoping exercise to inform the development of a national Community Link Workers programme. This is to honour the SNP 2016 election manifesto pledge: ‘Scotland’s most deprived communities need additional support, so we will recruit at least 250 Community Link Workers to work in GP surgeries and direct people to local services and support.’ The study is being conducted by Simon Jaquet Consultancy Services, and VHS is keen to ensure that a comprehensive range of third sector service providers and intermediaries are included in the study.
