Social Prescribing at Tapestry Care UK
By Hub Manager on 07/03/2022
What is Social Prescribing?
Social prescribing is part of what the NHS call Universal Personalised Support. Through link workers people are connected to wider community support which can help improve health and well-being and engage and deal with some underlying causes of ill health. It can involve a variety of support and activities. Some of which are typically provided by organisations like Tapestry such as volunteering, arts activities, group learning, gardening, befriending, cookery, healthy eating advice, sports and exercise.
How does Social Prescribing work?
Healthcare professionals - like your doctor or community nurse are able to refer you to local services to meet your wellbeing needs. They do this through a Social Prescribing Link Worker who will support you to say what you need and what you would like to do. At Tapestry, we do this by assisting you prepare your own personal support plan. The idea is to make the link between you and all the things out there in Havering and beyond that can help you stay physically and mentally well.
