When life gets tough, social prescribing can help Supporting You and Your Loved Ones

Life can be challenging. Particularly when big changes or unexpected hurdles knock us off track. We can find ourselves isolated, overburdened, and struggling financially.

Loneliness, debt, housing worries, caring for a loved one - these common issues can’t be solved with a medical prescription. But over time, they have a very real impact on mental and physical health.

Social prescribing provides a wealth of non-medical activities and services. It can help us overcome problems that are too big to handle alone. And it’s proven to improve health, wellbeing, and quality of life.
