Green Social Prescribing Toolkit
The National Academy of Social Prescribing (NASP), along with other partners including NHS England, have published a new toolkit, following the Green Social Prescribing Test and Learn Programme launched in April 2021.
This toolkit is designed to help communities, organisations and health professionals who are looking to set up green social prescribing programmes that connect with local health systems.
Green social prescribing is the practice of supporting people to engage in nature-based interventions and activities to improve their mental and physical health. Social prescribing link workers (and other trusted professionals in allied roles) connect people to community groups and agencies for practical and emotional support, based on a ‘what matters to you’ conversation.
