Social Prescribing Plus

What is Social Prescribing Plus?

Social Prescribing Plus is a free service in Brighton and Hove that links people to community services and groups to improve health and well-being, find new interests and hobbies and improve confidence and self-esteem.  We support people to identify and access local groups and services and to find information and services relevant to them. The service is funded by the NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group and focuses on non-clinical issues which affect health and wellbeing.

TDC are proud to be partnering with Together Co to deliver this service to people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

Groups, befriending and social activities
Housing benefits, financial support and advice
Employment, training and volunteering
Healthy lifestyle advice and physical activity

The service is confidential and provided by fully trained social prescribers.
