This is a free conference for anyone wants to be involved in shaping the future of Social Prescribing.

Following the successful Yorkshire, Humber and North East Regional Social Prescribing Network Conference held last July there has been a growing movement across the region to position social prescribing as a cornerstone for creating good health and wellbeing.

This event will build on this work by bringing together people from health, local government and voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors to continue the conversation, explore the benefits of social prescribing and plan how to spread social prescribing everywhere.

Who should attend?

The event will be of interest to clinical commissioning groups, public health, voluntary organisations, local authorities, general practitioners, academics, community groups and community organisers.

Why should you attend?

This event will be participative and workshops will help to build the case for social prescribing. The day will provide opportunities to learn about the latest national and local evidence of impact, consider the spectrum of models available and think together about how we can mainstream social prescribing in a sustainable way.

What will you gain from attending?
