What is Social Prescribing?

Many things affect your health and wellbeing. A lot of people visit them feeling isolated or lonely. Or they might be stressed out by work, money and housing
problems. Sometimes it’s the stress of managing different long-term conditions.

Social Prescribing Day – 18th March 2021

Social Prescribing Day (scheduled 18th of March 2021) is an event aiming to foster an attitudinal change, to shift the power to the people and local communities, to forge cross-sectoral collaboration, to promote co-design and co-creation, and to ensure social prescribing continues to grow as a grassroots movement.

Prescribe to thrive – embedding social prescribing in Hove for 100 residents and practitioners

West Hove is home to many innovative organisations doing great work in creativity and wellbeing. However, social prescribing is under used by GPs in the area. The Robin Hood Health Foundation and key community partners will use their £50k Thriving Communities funding to broaden social prescribing options through more varied range and content, as well as consolidate existing cross-sector programmes and amplify patient involvement.
