Argyle Community Trust are leading this new project, which is one of the five Thriving Communities Funds announced in the South West. The project, fuelled by a passion for a social prescribing offer in a public, outdoor and natural setting, will see those already running community health and wellbeing activities unite to increase the provision of social prescribing.
Centred around Central Park, the offer hopes to engage 400 people in activity-based sessions and a further 300 in advice sessions. Those working in healthcare settings will be aware of how green social prescribing can benefit their clients.
Looking ahead, the goal is that participants will feel confident enough to return independently and embed time in green spaces as part of their own health and wellbeing. By creating a welcoming and safe space, and a sense that the park is a place for them, the project will see an increase in usage and engagement in the long term.
Really looking forward to seeing how green social prescribing is embedded through this project and the positive outcomes and impact it has on communities within Plymouth.
