Copeland Borough Council Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing

Social prescribers are health professionals based in the Copeland Borough council. We work with residents with their non-medical needs. We do this by helping them identify, 'what matters to them'. Working collaboratively to create a care plan, which may include referrals to local services and organisations within the community.

Our hope is for residents to have a better quality of life. Ultimately supporting them to improve their overall health and wellbeing, via connecting them to community groups and statutory services for support. For example; social groups like games clubs, financial and benefit advisors, gardening clubs, sports programmes and much more.
