Social Prescribing - the means by which people of all ages can find their way into local, wellbeing-boosting initiatives, with the help of a link worker, or community navigator - is now thriving, and delivering fantastic results for people all over the UK.

Traditionally used to help adults and older adults find non-medical ways of combating loneliness and stress, social prescribing has huge potential for young people too.

Join the Social Prescribing Youth Network to stay up to date with developments, receive priority invitations to youth social prescribing events and other benefits.
