Join our Hospital team to support people who are self-neglecting

We are recruiting 2 part-time posts to join our team in Torbay Hospital who will support people who are self-neglecting


A new project:  Supporting people who are self-neglecting across South Devon

Teignbridge CVS is leading, with our Health and Social Care partners, this test of change pilot to support people living in South Devon who are experiencing issues with self-neglect and hoarding.We know that for many people who experience self-neglect they will often decline help from others, they do not feel that they need the help, can be overwhelmed by their circumstances and are often isolated.  This can lead to crisis intervention following a serious deterioration.

This pilot aims to provide early, effective and supportive intervention to those adults to identify need and to advocate for and connect to the most appropriate offers of support from all agencies and to connect to community-based support to reduce their isolation.

We are looking for 2 people to deliver this project initially who are passionate, caring and dedicated to providing support to individuals and their wider families.  You will be curious and empathetic, non-judgemental, be great at listening and responding and be able to motivate and inspire clients to engage.
