Social Prescribing

Social prescribing is an approach to supporting people in a very person-centred way to improve their health and wellbeing. Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.
