Social Prescribing

What is Thriving Communities? 

Thriving Communites is a National Support Programme for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups working alongside exisitng local infrastructure agencies and Social Prescribing Link Workers. By acting as ‘community connectors’, Thriving Communities aim to provide community support to those most impacted by the Covid Pandemic, including Black, Asian and ethnically diverse communities.

Throughout our Learning Together programme, we’ve supported with over 150 participants by delivering a series of webinars, events and newsletters in the following areas:

  • The Arts, Heritage Creativity and Culture
  • Sport
  • Nature
  • Financial Wellbeing
  • Community Advice

The National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) will support 37 Thriving Community programmes across England with its £1.8 million fund from the Arts Council England, Historic England, Natural England, NHS England and NHS Improvement, Sport England, the Money & Pensions Service and NHS Charities Together.
