The Social Prescribing Project goes from strength to strength

As we come to the end of month 6 a pattern is beginning to emerge of the people I am working with.

I have seen 120 people for a first visit and 50 people for a second or third visit. 170 consultations to date. Of these 170 people 24% are male and 76% female.

35% are aged over 60 of these.

To date we carried out over 400 individual signposting or referrals to over 30 agencies.

We had a very successful event on social prescribing at vestry hall earlier this month. With a number of agencies and individuals contributing to the lively discussions.  With each provider of Social Prescribing and Community Navigating explaining their services. Finally two people who have benefited from social prescribing and care navigation both addressed the event about the difference it has made to their lives. 

Stayed tuned for further updates!
