A place focused, proof of concept, offering a new service in the 6 inner-city wards of Liverpool, BUS will bring forward a new, scalable service model fit for the post Covid 19 environment. By focusing on individuals’ lived experience of the Covid 19 pandemic, BUS will offer sustainable, effective interventions to promote and protect people’s well-being, in both the short and longer-term. It will do this by maximising their access to non-clinical VCSE services

Building on their existing assets for health, you will support each individual to develop and/or improve their social and other networks, so that they recover more quickly from any impacts of the recent lockdown and the socio-economic dislocation that the pandemic has created. Working with individuals referred to BUS, a bespoke, time limited plan will be co-created with each person to support their recovery; enable them to be more prepared for any future lockdowns; develop and/or maintain their educational/vocational skills; and enable them to use digital platforms to access goods/services/maintain their social links.

Vital to the sustainability and long-term success of the project will be the recruitment of a cohort of local people to act as volunteer community navigators. You will help to recruit, train and deploy these individuals.
