What is Social Prescribing?

Social prescribing is a national NHS England programme, and is a way for local

agencies to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on

‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing.

They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and

emotional support.
