WHAT IS SOCIAL PRESCRIBING

Social Prescribing is a new approach to holistic health care. Social Prescribing can connect people to local community supports with the aim of improving their health and wellbeing in a way that is meaningful to them. This might include linking to supports around healthy living, social groups, activities and can provide personalized support and service navigation. At Footprints Community, our Link Workers can work with people to understand what matters to them and what’s missing to help build a support plan to work on their goals.
