Social Prescribing Day 
Thursday, March 14th, 2024

On Thursday, March 14th 2024, we will be celebrating Social Prescribing Day. This is a day to raise awareness of what social prescribing is, how it works, and how it changes lives.

Social Prescribing Day is an annual celebration of the people, organisations and communities who make social prescribing happen. Social Prescribing Link Workers, Local and National Organisations, Medical Professionals, Community Support Workers, Academics and Students come together to promote, hold events, share ideas and highlight the positive impact social prescribing can have on individuals and communities. Contact your local social prescribing link worker to find an event near you!

It offers a range of materials and guidance to assist healthcare professionals, community organisations, and individuals in organising events, creating social media posts, raising awareness, and sharing the benefits of social prescribing. This toolkit highlights the importance of social prescribing in improving health and well-being, fostering community connections, and addressing social determinants of health.
