Social Prescribing

Going Local: Social Prescribing in your community

Social Prescribing is an opportunity to talk through any worries that might be affecting your health and wellbeing in a safe environment. The service supports you to make positive changes in your life by linking you up with groups, activities, and public services that can help.

We meet for hour-long appointments (and up to 6 sessions) to help you to focus on what matters most through shared decision making and support planning. We offer the Going Local service flexibility and tailored to individual needs. We can meet at your GP surgery, at a community venue, by going for a walk together, and also at home if you have a health condition that means it’s not possible to get out.

The support we refer you to could include: finding volunteering opportunities; improving emotional wellbeing including befriending schemes, peer support, or arts and leisure activities; social aspects of healthy living, which includes non-medical support to manage a long term health condition; and practical support at home to keep safe.

Going Local can be accessed via a referral from a GP surgery and or by completing an accessible online referral form here.
