Aims and Objectives

Social prescribing is a way for local agencies to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

This website provides information on the social prescribing model, case studies, videos, the impact it is having and other resources.
