About public health
Our focus in public health is on improving health and helping people lead a healthier lifestyle across Leicestershire. We operate and commission key services ranging from support to quit smoking, suicide prevention, substance misuse prevention and services to improve mental health and wellbeing.
About adult social care
Our focus in adult social care is to improve the lives of vulnerable people and their families. We help people do everyday things, be active in their community, and safeguard them from harm, as well as promote, maintain, and enhance their independence, so they are healthier, stronger, and more resilient. We support people including unpaid carers who need practical or emotional support to lead an active life.
It’s an exciting time to join our growing team and help us deliver our long-term vision for adult social care in Leicestershire, that puts people at its heart.
Our team members are from varied backgrounds and experience, from newly qualified to people who have worked with us for over 30 years. They make a real difference to people’s lives around the county, and cover the areas of Charnwood, Hinkley and Bosworth, North West Leicestershire, Blaby, Oadby and Wigston, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray.
There are a wide variety of career opportunities available within adult social care in older age adults, working age mental health and disabilities, transitions, and hospital teams.
We aim to deliver services which will enable people to gain or regain skills to help them to live independently and recover from illness, as well as promoting healthier lifestyles through our public health work .
We will do this in the most unobtrusive and least restrictive manner possible. This means that we will support people in the short term whilst expecting that wherever possible people will support themselves in the longer term.
