What is Social Prescribing?
Social prescribing is about supporting people to find interesting or helpful things in their community. This could be anything from support and advice organisations, to social or activity groups.
What do we offer?
We partner our clients with a social prescriber, who can give them up to 5 free and confidential sessions, over 4 months, to help them find the right things for them, and support them to get involved in the opportunities they would like to try. This could mean taking part in a social group with them for a couple of sessions, but depends on what the person needs in order to try something new.
It is important to us that our service is accessible for people, and that we find accessible things for them in the community. Our main way of working with people is face to face (or on Zoom during social-distancing), but we can also support people via telephone, email, letter and text.
