What is Social Prescribing?

Date of Event:    March 9, 2023

Social prescribing is the glue that links voluntary organisations with people who need their help. Many socially prescribed activities are run by voluntary and community organisations. These organisations are vital in the way they connect people with services and activities that make a difference.

“The voluntary community sector has a big part to play in supporting people’s health and wellbeing and preventing them from getting to a crisis point.” – Jane Hartley, National Academy for Social Prescribing
