New Community Wellbeing Officers appointed in Pembrokeshire

10 February 2020

Six new Community Wellbeing Officers have been successfully appointed to help deliver a new regional pro-active wellbeing service in Pembrokeshire.

There were several vacancies available for innovative, flexible and motivated individuals to excel in working as a key part of the team to deliver this exciting new model of pro-active Technology Enabled Care (TEC) service as part of the Welsh Government’s Transformation Fund project across the West Wales Partnership Board region.

These latest posts are hosted in Pembrokeshire by one of three partner organisations; Hywel Dda University Health Board, within the Pembrokeshire Community Directorate, Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS), within the Community Connector team; and the British Red Cross, within the PIVOT Caseworker team.

Delta Wellbeing TEC Prevention Strategy Manager Carla Dix said: “We are delighted to have successfully appointed six new Community Wellbeing Officers to help us deliver this brand new, exciting and innovative service alongside our partners. These posts are key to the development of our Pro-active Technology Enabled Care offer in Pembrokeshire.”

The Delta Wellbeing service provides a multi-function call/contact handling service 24x7 across south-west Wales. It is available to people who use social alarms, it also deals with out-of-hours emergency calls for council services and is an initial point of contact for social care to adults in Carmarthenshire and beyond.

In line with the new model of service the Wellbeing Officers will be required to carry out pro-active wellbeing assessments for service users in their own home or in community settings, with follow up support and review as appropriate. They will be key members of the Pembrokeshire Team providing Information, Advice and Assistance regarding community services for members of the public, outside agencies, health colleagues and other stakeholders requiring support.
