Invitation to apply for grant fund – Deadline 25 February 2021
Shropshire Council are working on an exciting project to bring social prescribing to the children and young people of Shropshire, starting with the South West of Shropshire including, Ludlow, Craven Arms, Church Stretton and Bishops Castle. Social prescribing is a way for services in collaboration with young people to find innovative solutions to the problems that many young people face.
Problems may be physical and mental health conditions, caused by social and environmental factors.
Instead of medical intervention we can use sources of non-medical support in the local community such as sport, volunteering, social groups, mentoring, lifestyle balance and advice to help.
Although the programme is still in development, we anticipate referrals into the programme coming from GPs, Schools, voluntary and community sector, job centre plus and others.
