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

Following successful Yorkshire, Humber and North East Regional Social Prescribing Network conferences held last year 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.

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?

The event and workshops will be participative, will help to build the case for social prescribing and share emerging best practice and learning.

The day will provide opportunities to learn about the latest national and local impact evidence, consider the spectrum of models available and think together about how we can mainstream social prescribing in a sustainable way.
