Thr1ve, Social Prescribing for Young People

Young People’s Social Prescribing

We are the Young People Social Prescribing Team of Chesterfield as well covering North Hardwick and Bolsover Primary Care Network. We work with young people age 11-18 or up to 25 if they have an additional need. We are a team of a Project Manager, Specialist Occupational Therapist and Link Workers.

Social Prescribing guides and supports young people who may be vulerable with health inequities such as: loneliness, poverty, mental health challenges, physical disabilities including obesity and much more to engage them in their communities through sport, arts, youth clubs, film, volunteering and... the list goes on!

It is not just the activities that we help young people access; we also help with transferable skills to be independent in the community after our input. We are a short term light touch service that aims to be as inclusive as possible for the young people that want to engage with us.

Pleas ensure consent is gained by the young person also and that they are aware of our social media for them to see what we currently do:
