Elemental Launch the World's First Ever Social Prescribing UnCo
Save the date! The world’s first ever Social Prescribing UnCo is coming to Manchester this year.
The first of its kind event, hosted by Elemental will take place at Ziferblat, Manchester on Wednesday 16th October 2019.
We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Social Prescribing UnCo, a celebration of social prescribing, which gives professionals from NHS organisations, housing associations, local authorities, the VCSE sector and others the opportunity to explore the role of collaboration and partnership working in social prescribing.
What is Social Prescribing UnCo?
Taking place in Manchester on Wednesday 16th October, the Social Prescribing UnCo will invite attendees to take part in a range of interactive workshops, giving them practical advice on social prescribing strategy, processes and collaboration.
Delegates will hear from a host of inspiring social prescribing trailblazers, champions, patients and professionals already succeeding in social prescribing thanks to positive cross-sectoral relationships and collaboration.
Boosting Collaborative Innovation
Taking the format of an UnConference, the event will create a vibrant atmosphere that will excite and energise everyone involved by incorporating a range of different sessions which will include problem-solving, design thinking, discussions and debates as well as offering registrants the chance to add their own topics of interest to the agenda.
The afternoon will feature an attendee driven agenda, designed to encourage collaboration, innovation and inspire organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of communities and super-charge the impact of social prescribing.
The Social Prescribing UnCo is set to attract thought leaders, champions and experts in the social prescribing space who’ll come together to celebrate social prescribing and share their thoughts, ideas, aspirations and best practice.

Elemental Co-Founder, Leeann Monk-Ozgul said “We believe that effective joint working and collaboration is crucial to ensuring people in our communities receive the support they need and to lay the foundations for an effective social prescribing programme. The Social Prescribing UnCo is rethinking your typical conference. It offers attendees the opportunity to shape their own agenda, get practical advice, hear about successful case studies and access a network of like-minded individuals. It covers all aspects of what organisations need to start or scale their social prescribing programmes and services.”
