Description

Social Prescribing is a new method of health service delivery that aims to tackle the health problems associated with isolation by linking at-risk individuals with local community support. This British Psychological Society sponsered event brings those involved with delivering and commission such services with academics and other stakeholder. It will explore the practical implications of social cure work in the interface between health services, purposefully commissioned services, existing third sector provisions and peer led services.

There will be a focus on the challenges facing organisations involved in social prescribing and the populations they serve. There will also be a strong focus on networking and the event will include interactive workshops to identify the key challenges faced by those involved in delivering and/or commissioning social prescribing programmes.
