Health & Wellbeing Network Meeting - Westminster wide
Social Prescribing is a term that we hear increasingly these days. It describes people positively accessing activities and services in the voluntary and community sector to support their health and wellbeing. Typical activities include befriending, coffee mornings, community theatre, exercise classes, choirs and much, much more.
At the moment this service is being introduced in Westminster and link workers will be put in place to manage referrals. We have therefore put together this timely network meeting on 25 June that focuses on social prescribing - and hope as many organisations as possible will be able to attend to help shape the services and activities on offer to the residents of Westminster. Book your place NOW.
