Social Prescriber

Social prescribing is a key component of universal personalised care

Social prescribing 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.

Link workers also support existing community groups to be accessible and sustainable, and help people to start new groups, working collaboratively with all local partners.

Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • Making appointments for housing, benefits, and financial advice
  • Healthy lifestyle advice and physical activity
  • Joining and attending social activities and clubs
  • Getting online and accessing digital support
  • Befriending, counselling, bereavement, and peer support referrals
  • Finding employment, training, and volunteering opportunities
  • Completing Blue Badge/Taxi card/Dial-a-Ride applications
  • Emotional support
