Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing is a (non-medical) service that aims to help people improve both their health and wellbeing. It sees a broad range of people with differing social, emotional and practical needs, helping them access the right resources (e.g., groups, courses, activities, information, social connections, services, support, etc.) to meet those needs.

Social Prescribing Link Workers can support you to identify what is important to you and to set your own goals. They can then help you explore a range of options, such as groups, activities or services that can support you. Social Prescribing Link Workers go beyond simply providing information. They are able to listen, encourage you to try something new, help you find the right support and resources to meet your individual needs and make referrals for you, where necessary.

Claire Baker is our Social Prescribing Link Worker and you can refer yourself by:

  • contacting Claire directly on 01273 900423
  • OR by completing the online form at: https://togetherco.org.uk/contact-us (please add the name of your GP practice in the ‘Message’ box)
  • OR you can ask any member of staff at your GP practice to refer you to Social Prescribing.

We have two online events scheduled with our Social Prescribing partners, Together Co. It will be the same session but repeated across two dates:

‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’

The last year has been such a challenging time for many, so we'd like to give our patients an opportunity to learn about some of the simple ways we can look after our mental health.

Evidence suggests there are 5 steps you can take to improve your mental health and wellbeing and trying these things could help you feel more positive and able to get the most out of life. Join us to learn more about the 5 ways to Wellbeing and find out more about services available in Brighton and Hove that can support you.

This session will be run by George Roe, Social Prescribing Operations Lead from Together Co, the loneliness charity. The session will be held online via zoom, and we will record the session so it can be made available to others who are not able to attend. There is no obligation for you to interact or speak during the event, you can just sit back and listen to the advice.
