Supporting Communities and Improving Lives

Our partners

social prescribing for housing

Although some social workers may not specifically use the term social prescribing, the contribution that social workers make to communities is integral. Many social care professionals already help people in an informal and natural way, signposting them to support services to meet their needs, researching what’s available and offering a helping hand.

We believe social prescribing for social care is key in supporting communities to support themselves and promoting community wellbeing.

Using our social prescribing platform, social care professionals can;

Facilitate individuals to identify the support required, based on their needs

Browse a range of suitable social prescribing programmes and services

Connect to community providers/facilitators

Keep up to date with an individual's social prescribing activities
