Social prescribing empowers people to take control of their health and wellbeing through referral to ‘link workers’ who give time, focus on ‘what matters to me,’ take a holistic approach to an individual’s health and wellbeing and connect people to diverse community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

Social Prescribing Link Workers have the very important job of taking service users by the hand through the journey of improving their wellbeing; helping to support clients as they learn how to navigate the community on their own.

Link workers also support existing groups to be accessible and sustainable and help people to start new community groups, working collaboratively with all local diverse partners.
