The National Academy for Social Prescribing has a simple ambition: we want people to live the best life they can.
We want social prescribing to thrive – a vibrant, innovative and ambitious movement, mobilising hundreds of thousands of people and organisations with a shared commitment to transforming lives.
Our Strategic Plan, A Social Revolution in Wellbeing outlines how we will support social prescribing across the country over the next few years.
Our activity will focus on 5 key areas – making some noise, finding resources, building relationships across all sectors, shaping and sharing the evidence base and spreading what works – and includes:
- launching a £1 million Social Prescribing Development Fund later this year, to help local community groups spread their support offer;
- a Social Prescribing Partners programme, which will connect up thousands of organisations with a shared purpose to support social prescribing;
- an Academic Partners’ Collaborative, to develop the evidence base for social prescribing with a £500k research fund; and
- partnership with the Southbank Centre, who will host us for one year and enable the development of joint initiatives.
