Social Prescribingis a (non-medical) service that aims to help people improve both their health and wellbeing. It sees a broad range of people with differing social, emotional and practical needs, helping them access the right resources (e.g. groups, courses, activities, information, social connections, services, support etc.) to meet those needs.
We are pleased to be working with Together Co to offer this service - our Social Prescribing Link Workers can support you to identify what is important to you and to set your own goals. They can then help you explore a range of options, such as groups, activities or services that can support you. Social Prescribing Link Workers go beyond simply providing information. They are able to listen, encourage you to try something new, help you find the right support and resources to meet your individual needs and make referrals for you, where necessary.
