Community Health and Wellbeing Worker Project – Bringing Brazil to Selby!

By July 8th, 2024No Comments

Community Health and Wellbeing Workers play an essential role, supporting households to access health services and community support, helping to address rising inequalities in health and social care, and identifying unmet needs in the community.

Each Community Health and Wellbeing Worker has a defined number of households and this project is currently working on streets in Selby West Ward (around Flaxley Road). Workers visit people in their homes to provide health and wellbeing advice and connect them to NHS and community-based services and activities.

Based on an existing health model in Brazil, this exciting project is being delivered by Selby Town Primary Care Network in partnership with Up for Yorkshire, funded by the Integrated Care Board.
