GM Social Prescribing Map

18 Apr 2018 - 10:03 by helen.walker

Salford CVS is working with the University of Salford to map social prescribing provision across Greater Manchester. This is an important piece of work as it will help to determine the extent of social prescribing provision as we move forward across GM to develop social prescribing models as part of our Person and Community-Centred Approaches programme. The aim is to create a 'map' of social prescribing for the whole of GM so that we can understand the great work that's already happening, lift out the beacons of good practice and help share information and ideas across GM.
