Our social prescribing team works with young people aged 13–25 in Sheffield to help them with challenges such as low mood, loneliness and anxiety.
Simply put, social prescribing finds non-medical ways of helping you feel better about yourself and your life. Rather than writing a prescription for a medication, a Social Prescribing Link Worker from Sheffield Futures can signpost you to a source of non-medical support in the area where you live, such as a community group or class.
Taking part in sport, cycling, walking, creative arts, volunteering and dancing are all examples of activities you might be ‘prescribed’. We work with you to find out about the things you enjoy, your values and the things that matter most to you, and what’s going on in your local area.
If you think social prescribing could help you, please fill out the referral form.
