Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing is a way of supporting people who may need additional assistance that their GP cannot directly provide. Through this innovative scheme, GP’s in Rotherham can refer people with long term health conditions to access a range of community activities and voluntary sector services via Voluntary Action Rotherham.

We offer:

  • Information and advice to identify the benefits that are available to you and to complete and submit the forms.
  • A Befriending Plus service that provides personal support to develop confidence, increase independence, join new community groups and services and explore personal interests.
