Going Local: Social Prescribing - Connecting Communities

Going Local - Happy is Healthy

Life can be challenging sometimes, and when there's more than one hurdle, it can be hard to know where to start. The Going Local social prescribing service gives you a safe place to talk at length about any worries that might be affecting your health and wellbeing and find out about what support is available in your community. 

You can access Going Local by speaking with your GP surgery and asking for a social prescribing referral, or by completing the form below:

Once we've received your referral one of our social prescribers will contact you to arrange a session to talk through any of your concerns or issues. We are there to listen. Our highly trained social prescribers will then be able help you access the right advice and navigate local support services that could benefit you.
