Renfrewshire Community Links

Support with social, financial, mental health and practical challenges.

While your GP and practice nurse offer treatments for medical issues, they often don’t have time to explore other types of support with their patients. This is where our Community Link Workers come in.

  • 1:1 support
  • Group activities

How we can help

We have Community Link workers in very GP practice across Renfrewshire. Although they aren’t part of the NHS, we work closely with GPs and other practice staff. We can help with challenges such as:

  • Loss and bereavement
  • Loneliness and social isolation
  • Relationship problems
  • Feeling low or anxious
  • Unemployment or difficulties at work
  • Worries about money, debt or housing
