Social Prescribing Link Workers

Social Prescribing Link Workers offer a wide range of non-clinical support to all patients and families from bereavement to wellbeing, and are able to direct you to activities and community led services which may help you.

Social Prescribing could benefit those who:

*Are lonely/isolated and wanting more social connection

*Struggling with depression/anxiety/stress (but not in crisis)

*Lacking self confidence

*Wanting to get back into employment/volunteering

*Are new to the area

*Need extra support around the house (shopping/cleaning etc)

*Wanting to become more active/make healthy changes

*Carers

*New parents

*Financial/benefit/housing issues (by signposting to/referring for support from another specialist agency)

This list is by no means exhaustive!
