Social Prescribing

Social prescribing involves taking time to identify with an individual what matters to them and then, in a person-centred way, connects someone to practical and emotional community support, which can empower and improve health and wellbeing. 

Building on our learned experience from delivering ConnectWELL 2014-2022 we are continuing to support and develop relationships to strengthen social prescribing in Warwickshire and Solihull. 

As a local infrastructure organisation we frequently participate in a variety of health and wellbeing forums, boards, and networks.
