Whether you’re based within a primary care setting, alongside a GP and practice nurses, or you’re out in the community, you are supporting individuals with a wide range of needs.
Perhaps an older adult has been referred to you because they are lonely. Someone else may come to you at risk of diabetes, with an interest in local fitness activities. Or perhaps someone is anxious because they’ve recently been made redundant. You get to spend time with that person to find out what their goals are, what interests them, what barriers they might be facing.
You are the important connector into a wide range of activities and support services. It’s that time and your holistic approach which puts you in a unique position to support people with their financial wellbeing and money matters, in a joined-up way.
