Wellbeing Enterprises CIC Vacancies

Working in partnership with Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, this two-year project aims to revolutionise the care provided to people living with a cancer diagnosis and their carers in the Liverpool area.

The project will connect patients with community based support that will complement the care provided by clinicians. The aim of the project is to help patients to identify and address any needs that may be impacting on health and wellbeing. Moreover, the project will help patients to rediscover and reconnect with their strengths and talents to help make friendships, learn new skills, build confidence and get the best out of life.

The project is now recruiting.
