Social Prescribing

What is Social Prescribing?

Our Social Prescribing Link Workers work with you to explore areas in your life you feel you need support. Over several sessions we help identify what matters to you and develop a plan with you to support you to make positive life changes.

We will connect you to activities, services, social groups, and advice in and around Hackney.

It is Free and Confidential and available to anyone aged 18+ registered at our practice
