The Wellbeing Matters programme is currently recruiting an additional five Community Connectors.

The Wellbeing Matters programme is a Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise led initiative delivered by Salford CVS in partnership with Salford Third Sector Consortium that focuses on Person and Community Centred Approaches to improving the wellbeing of Salford people. A key element of Wellbeing Matters is the community connecting/ social prescribing programme that connects people referred by health professionals with a non-medical need to local community assets to support their wellbeing, independence, and to reduce social isolation.

The programme aims to support people to feel more connected to their community, more confident, and less socially isolated by linking them into local groups and services. The goal is for people to be better equipped to manage their own health and wellbeing with less reliance on clinical health and care services. The Wellbeing Matters Community Connectors (Social Prescribing Link Workers) work with people on a 1:2:1 basis over a number of sessions to establish ‘what matters to them’ and to then connect them into relevant local non-medical wellbeing and social support within their neighbourhood to improve their wellbeing and decrease social isolation. 

The Wellbeing Matters programme also supports the development of the VCSE ecosystem that supports social prescribing through volunteering, voluntary action, community activities and investment. 

Wellbeing Matters is a nationally recognised programme, featuring at the recent International Social Prescribing Conference as an example of good practice. You can find out more here.
