Social Prescribing

Hi, social prescribing here! We work with people aged 13–25 to help them with challenges such as low mood, loneliness and anxiety.

Social prescribing finds non-medical ways of helping you feel better about yourself and your life. One of our team can signpost you to a source of 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.

Social Prescribing FAQs

What is Social Prescribing? What is Wellbeing?

Social prescribing helps connect people to
groups and services in the community. It is a way
to help them manage their health and wellbeing.

Wellbeing is to do with your physical and mental
health and your quality of life. It is about being
happy, healthy and comfortable with your life
and what you do.
