Social prescribing is for everyone! Here to support you connect to your community.
Social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. This is particularly important during the COVID-19 pandemic, as this can be a very worrying time for people.
Our Social Prescribers can support people who are vulnerable, feeling socially isolated, lonely, or just adjusting to staying at home.
We support people by telephone, utilising therapeutic approaches be it actively listening and unpicking what their main worries may be and offering coping mechanisms. We help them stay connected, offer peer support, signpost to community assets and support with practical issues including access to online resources and to identify and explore home-based activities and goal setting.
The service is currently available to any Bracknell Forest resident, aged 18 or over.
This service forms part of the Bracknell Forest Warm Welcome Programme
