Southampton Social Prescribing and Signposters network

Actions and Detail Panel



Online event

An open event for Southampton's social prescribers, community navigators and signposters to come together and design the network.

About this event

We've been asked by the CCG to facilitate a Southampton city wide network of social prescribers. We'd love to see you at this session for social prescribers, navigators and signposters where we'll all design the Southampton signposters network together- choosing topics, priorities, practicalities, format and more.

Come along with your ideas and thoughts! Or just to find out more.

The network may include:

- further training events in our 'Linking with..' series on topics chosen by the network. Previous events have included linking with...mental health support, physical activity, learning disability, volunteering, green social prescribing. These events give an introduction to the topic and then showcase the local voluntary sector activities and services available

- Sharing PCN and team priorities and specialisms

- Co designing practical ways to measure impact, support from external sources to conduct research that can then be used by the network

- CPD / training

- Peer Support and community of practice

- Input from service managers/PCN leads

- A social prescriber's zone on our directory where Social prescribers can 'favourite' the services and activities relevant to them.

- A webpage for sharing Southampton Social Prescribing News gathered from VCSE, statutory sectors and social prescribers

- Learning from other social prescribing nationally

- An annual celebration of social prescribing and navigation in Southampton

- Close working links with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector and the statutory sector in Southampton both city wide and on a local level, and with local networks.

- Being a voice for social prescribing- raising the profile and highlighting the benefits of social prescribing on a regional, city wide and local level.

- Giving a forum for social prescribers to highlight any gaps in provision so that we can work with local people, the voluntary sector, council, CCG and other infrastructure organisations to address those.
