Gloucestershire Community Wellbeing Service (Social Prescribing)

In Gloucestershire, Social Prescribing Universal (non-medical intervention for non-medical needs) is delivered through the Community Wellbeing Service. This service provides a vital link between healthcare professionals and the community. When a person is referred into the Community Wellbeing Service they will receive one to one support which will help them overcome their non-medical concerns that may be impacting their ability to manage their health and wellbeing or long term conditions (such as stress; social isolation & loneliness; worry about debt and/or housing issues). Different levels of support are offered according to need including signposting to local community provision and one-to-one support using a coaching approach to wellbeing. The Community Wellbeing Service is facilitated by Community Wellbeing Agents and Social Prescribing Facilitators who encourage independence and increase the individuals’ sense of responsibility they have over their health care. The service is available for anyone aged 16 or over, living in Gloucestershire or registered with a Gloucestershire GP.
