Social prescribing

Our social prescribing offer is for GPs and other healthcare professionals to tackle non-medical needs, social isolation and loneliness.

What we offer

Home Group has responded to this growing need by developing and delivering a social prescribing offer. Our service enables healthcare professionals to refer patients to local, non-clinical services to meet their wellbeing needs. The services are available locally and how they work together will determine what the patient will be able to participate in.

Support is as varied as the individuals who need it - everything from groups of friends meeting for a chat, peer support groups, online communities, clubs and informal hobby or activity groups, to sports, arts and culture activities as well as more traditional charity services such as information, advice and advocacy.

Key benefits

  • Person centred care, underpinned by evidence, which supports people to lead fuller, happier lives
  • Building capacity within community based services which reduces demand and releases capacity from the acute sector and in-patient beds
  • Co-produced integrated services with our health, local government and voluntary sector partners around the needs of the person, to improve their outcomes and support them to achieve and sustain wellbeing
  • Services which incorporate psychological therapies by building skills and capacity in our workforce.

The support from staff has been nothing short of amazing. They have helped me to get my independence back and understand my mental health condition. I still go through tough times but know that the staff are always here to offer me support when I most need it.
