Who can take part?

If you’re over 18 and struggling with your mental health and well-being, for any reason, then the Social Prescribing service can help.

How does it work?

Give us a call or send an email. Your GP may also refer you. You will then be allocated a trained link worker who will listen to your concerns and find out what you think might help to improve your wellbeing.

Such concerns could include overcoming anxieties and worries around relationships, financial matters, housing, physical health, stress and panic attacks, depression and loneliness or general Covid-19 and lockdown issues.

Your link worker will then help you to access a range of support and advice services to suit your needs: offering guidance and encouragement throughout. The aim of the service is to both support and empower.
