      **Calling all those who work in Social Prescribing services that provide support for older adults (anyone aged 50 and above)**
      As part of a PhD in Psychology at the University of Surrey funded by the ARC KSS, we are investigating the current and ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic (from March 17th 2020) on Social Prescribing (SP) services which provide support for older adults, from the perspective of those who work in SP. To achieve this, an online survey has been developed which will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. We are recruiting participants who fit into one of the three groups:
      1. You work within an organisation/service that provides SP for older adults.
      2. You are a SP Link Worker (or Community Navigator – which they are sometimes called) who works directly with older adults to develop their social prescription.
      3. You work within the Voluntary, Community Faith and Social Enterprise Sector (VCFSE) for an organisation that provides the social prescription for older adults which a Link Worker refers to.

      To participate, you must also work with older adults in your job role and have worked within SP before AND during the Covid-19 pandemic. Your participation is completely voluntary but if you wish to take part, please follow the link below:

      Happy New Year!

      I am still in (desperate!) need of 10-15 more participants for study 1 of my PhD.

      Hello everyone!

      I have received an ethics extension to keep the survey open for another six months, with the aim of recruiting as many participants as possible. If you are eligible and can spare some time to take part (although I appreciate how busy you are likely to be!), I would really appreciate it.

      Below is some further information, including the survey link:
