Are you a provider of out-door related social prescribing interventions and activites? Would you like to refer into green and blue social prescribing programmes or receive referrals to your service?
What is green social prescribing?
Green social prescribing is community-based support for people with health and wellbeing issues and as part of the larger Long Term Plan by the NHS.
Green social prescribing focuses on nature-based interventions, programmes, and activities. Examples of green social prescribing activities include walking, food growing, gardening, and cycling that can be carried out in forests, parks, gardens, and other natural environments.

What is blue social prescribing?
Blue social prescribing is used to describe the social prescription of community-based interventions and activities around water which have been proven to lower levels of anxiety, mood disorders, and positively enhance mental and general health. Examples of blue social prescribing activities include swimming, aerobics, and fishing that can be carried out on coastal areas, wetland visitor centres, and reserves.

Join us at 2:30pm on Tuesday October 5th to hear more about how region-wide social prescribing projects have grown significantly across North Wales since last year. With eight organisations providing core social prescribing services across North Wales, social prescribing is rapidly expanding across the region, and we’d love to take this opportunity to invite you to be part of it.
The event will be chaired by Glynne Roberts, Programme Director of Well North Wales, and supported by Amy Brady, Customer Success Executive, Elemental, as well as the project leads from Medrwn Mon and Small Woods.
We would like you as a provider of services to learn how you can connect with communities through the social prescribing model of care.
