Age UK Camden – contract to end March 2020
Salary: P02 SCP 35-38 £34,938 to £37,650 pa pro rata for a 28 hour week
Age UK Camden (AUC) are an exciting new service for Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as part of a social prescribing service for residents of 18 years and over until March 2020.
The service has developed from the Care Navigation pilot which AUC successfully ran for residents 60 years of age and over until Sept 2018. Care Navigation is a strategic priority for Camden CCG and is about using community-based services, alongside traditional statutory health and social care services to help improve health and wellbeing. Local non-clinical social prescribing services support people to make positive choices to promote good health and emotional well-being and can often provide a practical option that can support existing medical treatments for patients. The preventative interventions put in place by social prescribing services help provide support to residents earlier, helping to reduce and delay the need for costly interventions.
Age UK Camden is a lively and innovative charity providing a wide range of services and support to older people in the London Borough of Camden. The group consists of two subsidiaries associated with the charity, one providing local services in the Camden area to disabled people, the other to LGBT older people across London.
