Working in partnership with

Social Prescribing for VCSE
Social Prescribing for Charities

The valuable role of the VCSE sector in reducing health inequalities has been well documented and the role of the VCSE is pivotal to social prescribing and providing personalised, place-based care.

We recognise that VCSE organisations make a difference to millions of lives and that demonstrating your social impact is crucial in order to evaluate the difference you make, communicate it to your stakeholders, attract funding, and develop a sustainable growth strategy.

By implementing our digital social prescribing for VCSE platform, community organisations can;

Facilitate more people to access and engage in social prescribing services

Demonstrate the impact of your social prescribing programmes and services

Provide analytics for funding applications and reports

Reduce admin duties and increase resource of your staff

WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY

Tony Doherty

“What excites me most about the partnership we have with Elemental Software is the ability to enable members of the community to self-refer. We are seeing a change in mindset of late where the community is demanding social prescriptions as alternatives to medication and the development of mental and physical health conditions. For the first time, we will have the analytics to assess the effectiveness of each referral we receive and generate across the HLC Alliance”.

- Tony Doherty Regional Coordinator, HLC Alliance
