About the role

Community Connections is a partnership contract funded by Clinical Commissioning Groups and Surrey County Council. The Catalyst Community Connections team works with a range of other partners to collectively offer a wide range of mental health support and wellbeing activities.

The Catalyst service is open to adults within North West Surrey, Guildford and Waverley and Surrey Heath and Farnham CCG areas, who want to maintain or increase their sense of wellbeing. As such any person wanting support to improve their mental health and wellbeing and/or prevent an existing mental health problem worsening can refer to the service.

The post holder will support and enable clients to manage their own health and wellbeing; promoting healthier lifestyles and raising the awareness of the concept of ‘wellbeing’ and good mental health within an integrated care pathway.

The role involves delivering community based activities and interventions, including skills-based groups and wellbeing activities, which are complementary to and reduce the need for services offered by the statutory sector. The groups and activities will aim to help clients to become more confident, enhance their wellbeing, and to develop their self-esteem and coping strategies.
