Social prescribing is an innovative approach to connecting people with
non-medical sources of support within their local community. It is a way of
linking individuals to a range of local, non-clinical services, such as
community groups, arts activities, and other voluntary and charity
organisations. This helps people to gain a greater understanding of their own
wellbeing, while providing them with an opportunity to access meaningful
activities and services that can help them to improve their mental and physical
health. Social prescribing encourages individuals to take an active role in
managing their own health and wellbeing and can play an important role in
supporting individuals to stay healthy and well.
