Many people will be given an appointment with their social prescribing link worker in their local GP practice.

They will help you to identify, and connect with, local activities that may help improve, or give you control over your health. You can ask to speak to a social prescribing link worker at your local GP practice.

Or you may want to connect with activities in your local area directly. There is growing evidence that a range of social activities – including physical exercise, engaging with arts or cultural activities, and connecting with the natural environment – can benefit our health and wellbeing.  

Find out more about these activities and support available through the links below, or ask in your local library, community centre or look online for local groups and services.
