Age UK Bradford District is a local, independent charity with over 30 years experience supporting and working with older people in the Bradford District. We are passionate about valuing everyone’s future, putting people first and creating age friendly communities.
We are excited that this winter we will be working in partnership with Airedale General Hospital and Bradford Teaching Hospitals. As a key partner we will take a strength based approach to ensure that older people with frailty get the support that is right for them, in the right place at the right time.
We are looking to build a team of 5 Personal Support Navigators who will provide this support as part of the brand new multi- agency support team (MAST) – working alongside adult social care, clinical leads, VCS alcohol and peer support workers as well as the wider urgent care teams including the virtual ward.
You will be committed to using a person centred approach to ensure the personal aims and choices of people are properly represented within the multi-disciplinary team. You should have the ability to think innovatively and find creative solutions; involving other organisations and volunteers; being effective as a facilitator rather than a fixer.
