A social prescribing project is one which
supports the health and wellbeing of people by spending time linking a person
into local supports and activities. A Link Worker will meet with a person and
chat about what activities they are interested in, explore hobbies and the
benefits of participating in them, and will assist and support a person in
availing of community resources.
Community Referral involves linking a person
into community-based activities and supports, such as exercise, art, reading
and gardening. Community Referral is Free of charge and suitable for anyone
over the age of 18 who is interested in making a change in their lives.
