4. Resource And Referral Agent

The Faith Community Nurse liaises between the individual and the faith community, and the individual and other health and community services.  

The Faith Community Nurse is able to negotiate access to, and assist entry into health services or support networks in the local community, of which people may be unaware. This resource and referral activity occurs within the faith community and beyond. The aim is to better manage and coordinate care for individuals and communities.
