Social prescribing enables organisations to refer people to a range of services that offer support for social, emotional or practical needs.

This could include feelings of loneliness, as well as for debt, employment or housing problems, or difficulties with their relationships.

Social prescribing connects people to community groups and services, often through the support of a ‘link worker’.

The exact nature of the role can vary depending on where you live in Kent and Medway.

Link workers are employed by different organisations, depending on where you live. Some link workers are based in GP surgeries.

Some local authorities also employ people with a social prescribing element to their role.
