Long term wellbeing programme

Social prescribing is where an individual is connected to services or activities in the community which are likely to help with the health problems they are experiencing. These activities are prescribed as a non-clinical alternative to a medical prescription.

Reachout provides opportunities for individuals to participate in expressive visual arts and music programmes, outdoor activities, lifelong learning, volunteering, social support, mutual aid and self-help.

Social prescribing aims to encourage greater control for individuals and is particularly useful for people with long-term conditions, vulnerable groups and those who are socially isolated.
