Welcome to the London region Thriving Communities page. We at London Plus are happy to be hosting this programme, working with the five regional leads across London, NASP and the regional partners as part of the Thriving Communities Programme.

The Thriving Communities programme has enabled us to support the local sector in social prescribing through learning and sharing through our Learning Together programme, as well as make key strategic partnerships.

If you want to get involved in any way or have any questions, please contact London.ThrivingCommunities@NASP.info
