Social Prescribing and the Arts
January 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£35 – £70
Have you heard of Social Prescribing and want to know where the arts fit?
- Are you interested in setting up an Arts on Prescription programme and want to know who to partner with and how to get it off the ground?
- Are you already delivering Arts on Prescription and want to improve and grow your programme?
Arts on Prescription forms part of the Social Prescribing model whereby GPs, nurses and other care workers refer people to a range of community-based, non-clinical services as a way of addressing their health and wellbeing needs in a holistic way.
Social prescribing schemes often involve a variety of activities – volunteering, community education, gardening, healthy eating, exercise – usually provided by the voluntary sector.
This workshop will focus on the role the arts play within Social Prescribing.
