We’re extremely proud to have been working with Greater London Authority on co-designing a vision for Social Prescribing across London. The vision is due to be launched in Autumn 2018. As part of our involvement in the programme, we were commissioned to research, focus and present this report.
This report, commissioned by the GLA, looks at the role of the voluntary,community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in scaling social prescribing in London – in particular, the role of the sector in effective delivery of services, the challenges and opportunities the sector faces and the support required, as well as outlining its future role.
In order to compile the report, extensive consultation and engagement was carried out that included interviews, workshops and deep dive compilations of good practice case studies and brief summaries (ones to watch) with over 100 experts –predominantly across the VCSE sector but also statutory-sector commissioners and representatives of the health and social care sectors.
