What is social prescribing and how can it help you?

Social Prescribing is using the network of community groups, activities and events provided by the public, private and voluntary sectors to improve the wellbeing of individuals, families and neighbourhoods.

Fleetwood is fortunate to have a wide range of opportunities for people to socialise and exercise, to try something new, indoors and out - the town's open spaces and coastal location provide a great environment to enjoy the fresh air and the views, combatting the effects of isolation, especially during the COVID pandemic.

Fleetwood's three GP surgeries are supported by a small team of social prescribing link workers who can direct residents to the activities best suited to their interests and personal goals.


They will meet you somewhere you feel comfortable or chat by phone, listen to what you want to achieve and advise you of what's available in the community. As you are introduced to groups, the link-workers will keep in touch and continue to offer their help.
