Voluntary Health Scotland (VHS) are seeking third sector input, via their online survey, after being commissioned by the Scottish Government to carry out a scoping exercise informing their future plans to create an additional 250 Community Link Workers.
These Community Link Workers will work in GP surgeries and help direct people to local services and support.
VHS would like to hear from direct service providers from across the third sector and people who are already involved in Community Link Worker programmes. They would particularly like to hear from anyone who works for a direct health and social care service provider within the third sector. (There is a separate survey being conducted with TSIs.)
The closing date for responses is Friday 14th October.
For further information, or to complete the survey, please visit the VHS SurveyMonkey webpage.
