Join the Thriving Communities Network
Discover, develop, and connect with social prescribing through the Thriving Communities Network.
Are you involved in or looking to understand more about social prescribing? Want to discover how it works and how it is developing? Keen to make connections with colleagues involved in the delivery of social prescribing in the North East, North Cumbria and Yorkshire? Join the Thriving Communities Network!
The regional Thriving Communities Network is open to anyone working for voluntary, community, faith, and social enterprise (VCFSE) organisations with an interest in or involved in the delivery of social prescribing in the North East, North Cumbria and Yorkshire regions, as well as those working in the NHS and health and care system – such as social prescribing link workers and host organisations, PCN staff, Public Health and Local Authority health leads in the region. VONNE is encouraging anyone who wants to make better connections between VCSFE and health and care sector to join. Find out more about the regional Thriving Communities Network and previous activity here. The network is free to join and participate in. Sign up here.
Starting this Autumn, Network members can participate in a variety of events and activities which aim to help share information, increase capacity and further your knowledge about social prescribing across the region. These activities will provide insight into how social prescribing is developing, give opportunities to network and connect with others working in social prescribing and delivering services, meet local and national social prescribing leads and partners, explore ways to develop your work in social prescribing, and take part in learning development activities.
