As part of their commitment to delivering their Community Impact Strategy, ForHousing embraced the concept of social prescribing. Using Elemental’s Core platform, housing officers and neighbourhood coaches can now connect local residents to sources of non-clinical support in their communities, from cooking classes and exercise programmes to employment support and debt advice.


Social prescribing has proven as a successful method of supporting tenants to maintain successful tenancies, build healthy, thriving communities and reduce health inequalities across their neighbourhoods and a way to put people in control of their pathways.

Join our host, ForHousing Wellbeing Lead for Cheshire West, Toria Buzza, and Elemental Co-founders Jennifer Neff and Leeann Monk Ozgul as we:

Establish where you are, what level of social prescribing you’re offering and how to get started if you’re not currently offering a programme.

Join the dots between health and housing through social prescribing and how to overcome challenges like engagement when dealing with tenants who are in a level of crisis

Demonstrate how social prescribing can benefit tenants and improve their lives. From birth to death, why housing associations need to become national coordinators
