Why should you take the course?
Whether you’re new to social prescribing or working in this area already, this interactive course will broaden your practical skills and knowledge in social health and wellbeing work. It will allow you to support individuals to access services in the community that are appropriate to their needs and leave you with a highly-desirable qualification at the end of it.
What’s more, you’ll benefit from the latest research and knowledge from the practitioners and leaders at the forefront of social prescribing, who will set out how you can complement your organisation’s approach to it.
