Charity registered in Scotland SC037475

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) is an independent Scottish Charity funded by a grant from the Scottish Government.  Our vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.

The ALLIANCE has three core aims; we seek to: 

  • Ensure people are at the centre, that their voices, expertise and rights drive policy and sit at the heart of design, delivery and improvement of support and services.

  • Support transformational change, towards approaches that work with individual and community assets, helping people to stay well, supporting human rights, self-management, co-production and independent living.

  • Champion and support the third sector as a vital strategic and delivery partner and foster better cross-sector understanding and partnership.

The Community Links Practitioner will provide a person-centred service that is responsive to the needs and interests of a GP practice population. They will support them to identify issues that affect their ability to live well. Working collaboratively with individuals, the post holder will support them through decision making processes to help them decide upon the issues that they would like to address and help them to overcome any barriers to addressing these.

You must have experience of working with people who are experiencing complex social and emotional circumstances, and a strong understanding of the challenges faced by people living in areas of socio-economic deprivation in relation to living well.
