National Voices – South West Social Prescribing Workshop
March 5 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
National Voices are holding a regional workshop to capture the views of the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector on social prescribing.
Social prescribing links people with health and care problems to practical and emotional support in communities and the voluntary sector. National Voices is interested to hear about the experiences and perspectives of VCSE organisations on how social prescribing can fulfil its potential and improve the lives of people by better meeting their practical, social and emotional needs alongside their medical needs. This includes charities, social enterprises or other community-based organisations involved or looking to be involved in social prescribing in the South West. This could be in a role that links people with health problems into support and activities to improve wellbeing, a provider of such activities or as a community builder.

National Voices is the national umbrella membership body for charities working in health and care. The NHS England Personalised Care Group has commissioned National Voices to gather the insight and experiences of the VCSE sector on a key pillar of personalised care – social prescribing. The aim of the project is to explore the critical issues for the VCSE sector that need to be addressed to enable effective social prescribing. The project will work to surface key lessons and issues from the VCSE sector perspective, share good practice, and collectively identify solutions to enable effective and sustainable social prescribing.
