What is Thriving Communities?
Thriving Communities is a national support programme for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups, supporting communities impacted by COVID19 in England, working alongside social prescribing link workers.
Through networks, blogs, resources and webinars Thriving Communities enables communities to share learning, gain new ideas, access funding and develop partnerships across sectors.
It is run by the National Academy for Social Prescribing, an organisation dedicated to the advancement of social prescribing through promotion, collaboration and innovation.
What will you learn?
As well as understanding more about what social prescribing is and the role of link workers, you will get tips and advice on how community organisations can make the most of networks, partnerships and funding within social prescribing to boost capacity and support more people.
Why does this matter?
Social prescribing is a powerful approach to health and social care that enables people to get support in a way that is meaningful and helpful to them. Yet not everyone knows what social prescribing is or the impact it has. This webinar will explain more and leave you feeling empowered to make the most of social prescribing in your community.
