Social Prescribing




Social prescribers can give people time to discuss what matters to them, and what would help to improve their health and well-being. We can connect people to a range of local, non-clinical groups and services for practical and emotional support. The advice and support is personalised to the individual and takes a holistic (whole person) approach.  We aim to listen, support, and empower people to take control of their well-being. This support can be provided on-line, via telephone or face to face.

Social prescribing can benefit everyone, but works particularly well for those who are lonely or isolated, those with long-term conditions (including mental health), and those with complex social needs which affect their well-being. We address the wider determinants of health, such as debt, housing issues, physical inactivity and isolation.
