Tune into a live-streamed day of inspiring, informative sessions and performances from the National Academy for Social Prescribing and the Southbank Centre.

Led by NASP, The Social Prescribing Show celebrates the people and organisations who make social prescribing happen. These include Social Prescribing Link Workers and other NHS staff, grassroots groups and charities, and regional and national organisations delivering groundbreaking projects.

Social prescribing is a way of connecting people to non-medical activities, services and support that can benefit their health and wellbeing.

It’s already helping to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, including many who have previously struggled with their health or been unable to get the support they need.

Examples of social prescribing could include helping someone who is isolated to join a befriending group, an art class or a community gardening project; connecting someone struggling with financial stress to a service that helps them; or supporting someone with dementia to join a dementia choir, enabling them to maintain a sense of social connection.

Featuring expert contributors from a variety of sectors, this day celebrates the impact of social prescribing, addresses challenges and looks at what the future holds. It takes place on Social Prescribing Day.

There are sessions on tackling health inequalities through social prescribing; community development and the role of the voluntary sector; ensuring sustainability through finance and investment; and social prescribing across the globe.

There are also breakout sessions on arts, culture and heritage; physical activity; the natural environment; older people; and workforce and infrastructure; as well as a range of fantastic activities and performances. A full schedule will be available in advance of the day.
