Activities & social prescriptions image Activities & social prescriptions

It’s known that engaging in exercise, creative or social pursuits has a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing. 

For this reason, NHS and Local Authorities occasionally offer these activities through ‘Social Prescriptions’, such as gym membership or ‘Arts on prescription’.   

Even where formal ‘Social Prescriptions’ aren’t available, there are usually a wide range of activities on offer in local communities with a number of them funded by either Local Authorities, charities or voluntary organisations.

These may include:  walking groups, dance classes, knitting, fishing, cookery and many more.
