Third Sector Connectors
Who we are and what we do
The Third Sector Connectors service is jointly delivered by AGE UK Wirral, WIRED and Wirral Mind. The service provides a number of connector roles that work across teams within adult social care to assist in promoting and connecting people to the services provided within Wirral Health and Wellbeing CIC and also to other health and wellbeing services available in Wirral, complementing and supporting statutory health and wellbeing provision.
How does it work
Once a referral has been received a Third Sector Connector will speak to the individual and make arrangements for a home visit. At this initial meeting the Third Sector Connector will complete a Wellbeing Assessment to help provide a person specific action plan, this will then be discussed with the individual as to how they want to proceed. Referrals can be made to the Third Sector Connector team via the Integrated Front Door, Integrated Care Co-ordination Teams, Multi-Disciplinary Team meetings, GP Community Matrons or a self/carer referral.
The support we offer
The range of support offered can vary from going to community groups or supporting individuals to correctly utilise services such as opticians, pharmacists, occupational therapists and psychological therapies. Third Sector connectors enable individuals to improve their physical and mental wellbeing and build social connections that will provide long term support, in order to prevent future crisis and re-referrals to Social Care.
Individuals can contact our services directly using the telephone number or email address below or they can request to be referred to WIRED by a GP or other health professional
