The Wellbeing Team: Social Prescribers




A social prescriber is here to listen to you whatever your age.

We need to know what matters to you and how we can best support you to reach your goal. The Social Prescriber will have that conversation with you and put you in touch with the people and activities that might help you to feel better and meet your goal or overcome your difficulty.

Your Social Prescriber might introduce you to a community group, a new activity or a local club if you feel this is something that might be right for you. We can also support you by linking you with benefits advice or debt counselling or signposting to Citizens Advice.


Social prescribing is available for young families or young people, but parental consent is required for those under 18 years.   We can provide guidance on parenting, growing up, social and wellbeing issues.  We can help you to access local resources and ensure that you reach your goals.  You can self-refer to a social prescriber by visiting the following link.
