Thursday 11 November 2021 was a special day for the National Academy for Social Prescribing. Just over two years on from the organisation’s inception, we opened our new offices at the Southbank Centre. 

The ribbon to the office was cut by Chair of NASP, Helen Stokes Lampard, and Elaine Bedell,  Chief Executive of the Southbank Centre, who were joined by James Sanderson, CEO at NASP. 

It builds on the work that has already been done through programmes such as Art by Post, and cements a partnership that is committed to the social prescribing agenda, with a particular focus on arts, creativity and culture.  

James Sanderson, CEO of NASP, says “We’re so excited to be setting up the NASP offices at the SouthBank Centre, which is where we launched the organisation just over two years ago. It’s fantastic to mark this partnership, celebrating the great work that two organisations have done together and will continue to do for arts and wellbeing in the future years.” 

The office will be a flexible working space for NASP’s staff and partners who work across the country to meet each other and collaborate in offices in London.
