Social Prescribing Link Worker Service

What is a Social Prescribing Link Worker?


Social Prescribing Link workers can help you to take control of your health and wellbeing by linking you to services that can help with:

    • Physical activity
    • Mental wellbeing
    • Social activities
    • Benefits advice
    • Family/carers
    • Employment
    • Volunteering
    • Debt advice
    • Education
    • Housing
    • and more….

Social Prescribing Link Workers can work with you to develop a wellbeing plan, identifying root causes of your problems and linking you with the most appropriate support, along with activities that help improve wellbeing.

SPLWs will work with individuals for anything from 2 to 6 weeks depending on needs.

The Social Prescribing Link Worker service is not a crisis service. Anyone in crisis should contact their GP or the appropriate crisis services.  

Social Prescribing Link Workers are not support workers, social workers, counsellors, or mental health specialists.

To book an appointment contact reception or speak with your GP.
