Social Prescribing - The Way Ahead

Social Prescribing – The Way Ahead

Date: Fri 14 July 2017 Location: Riverside Church, Whitstable, CT5 3JQ

“If you hang out with chickens you’re going to cluck and if you hang out with eagles you’re going to fly” (Dr. Steve Maraboli, Behavioural Scientist)

Social prescribing is the new “hot” topic across health and social care. Red Zebra are offering an opportunity for you to understand how it works, to explore the benefits for your organisation and the people with whom you work.

This event will bring together colleagues from across statutory and voluntary sectors to explore how social prescribing can be implemented locally, identifying ways in which alliances and partnerships can collaborate to build healthier communities.

Speakers from Health, Kent Police, Social Care, Local Government, NHSE, Encompass, civil society and others are coming together to explore what social prescribing means to them. There will be a marketplace to offer opportunities to learn about existing voluntary and community services and activities.

This is the first in a series of three events seeking to develop and support effective social prescribing going forwards; learning from national best practice and identifying opportunities and challenges to the successful implementation of social prescribing at scale.
