Our young person’s social prescribing team are part of our Door43 wellbeing service.

What is a young person’s social prescribing link worker?

A young person’s social prescribing link worker aims to support young people to access and engage with community initiatives or provision, which can be anything from youth clubs to sports groups, with the ultimate goal to improve health and wellbeing.

Who can benefit from social prescribing?

Young people who are looking for ways to boost their wellbeing and willing to work with a young person’s social prescribing link worker to achieve this! Social prescribing can benefit people who are looking to deal with issues such as loneliness, isolation, stress, low confidence, or difficulties with accessing employment or education. It can especially benefit young people who are willing to try something new, so this could be a new group, activity or service in the area where they live.

I think social prescribing could help me. How do I get to see one of your team?
