Social Prescribing is all about making connections to improve people’s wellbeing. It is crucial to all of us to be in touch with each other and build a strong London community of practice.
Therefore, we facilitate a number of meetings to allow networking, sharing opportunities, challenges, and inspiration across Social Prescribing services.
It would be great to see you in our London sessions. To find out what’s coming up, take a look at the calendar below and look down the page to find out more.

Social Prescribing Link Workers’ Peer Support
These sessions are on hold whilst we evaluate what is happening across the London system to sense check what might be needed at a London level and to ensure it is not duplicating more local offers.
Please get in touch if you are keen to set up your own peer support locally and would like some support: firstname.lastname@example.org
Social Prescribing Managers’ Support
Monthly, 4:00-5.30pm. Sign up here.
This monthly 1.5hrs long meeting aims to support Managers of SPLWs that are feeling the need to connect with others doing a similar role. It covers updates and discussion around themes of SP Managers’ choosing. Group sizes will sit at a maximum of 15 people and will be organised with managers in areas nearer to you if demand exceeds this number. It is more likely to be useful for those that have a team of SPLWs though open to all.
