About this Event

Social Prescribing Training

Social prescribing is an important part of health and social care delivery, providing support to many individuals in our region.

The training aims to enable, support and provide skills to social prescribing workers and to contribute positively to reducing health inequalities for individual and communities. The training provides social prescribers with the underpinning knowledge of the health and social care sector; skills in understanding and identifying community assets; practical skills development in signposting, active listening and advocacy and support; and systems leadership.

The training has been designed by colleagues with understanding of social prescribing schemes and curriculum development and will be delivered by qualified tutors who are already working with communities, the third sector and GP practices. The training will be delivered in participatory workshops, with a focus on shared learning and experiences.

The training is written in collaboration with health and social care stakeholders and is based on recognised competencies and draws on the latest research. An overview of the content is provided below.
