Age UK Leeds is a leading local voluntary sector organisation providing high quality services to improve the health and wellbeing of older people in Leeds.   

Age UK Leeds provides a range of services and products in the community, which have been specifically developed to meet the needs of older people. We are now looking for Wellbeing Coordinators. 

Experience of working with older people who are frail and/or socially isolated with complex physical health needs and severe mental health issues is essential for this post.

Job Purpose

As a Wellbeing Coordinator you will be part of the City-wide service SWIFt, supporting older people aged 50+ who are living with frailty with complex health issues including severe mental health who are often socially isolated.  

All elements of the service will prioritise older people who are living without significant support in order to improve their wellbeing and independence. 

You will create action plans with older people which will promote choice, respect individuality and encourage self-determination. 

You will have the ability to build trusting working relationships whilst motivating older people to make sustained changes, working in a sensitive manner and overcoming barriers to access. 

As well as having a person-centred approach you will be expected to build and develop relationships with a wide range of services and activities in order to address social and health care needs, supporting older people to participate and benefit from community-based activities. 

No job description can be entirely comprehensive and the job holder will be expected to carry out such other duties as may be required from time to time and which are broadly consistent with the job description and status of the post within the organisation
