In July 2019 we will be running two workshops to explore social prescribing, the first with members of the interested public and the second with practitioners.
Workshop 1 (public): Wellbeing at cultural venues
We are holding a workshop to gather the views of members of the public about social prescribing (www.kingsfund.org.uk/publications/social-prescribing). Social prescribing seeks to address people's non-medical needs (e.g. feeling lonely, housing difficulties, debt problems) by linking them to groups or organisations in the local community that can help. The event will include brief talks about how social prescribing is being delivered in Oxford, and the role of gardens, libraries and museums in developing activities that can make people feel better and less isolated. There will be several opportunities during the day for those attending to share their views.
Date: Wednesday 10 July 2019, 9.45AM-4PM
Location: The King’s Centre, 64 Osney Mead, Oxford OX2 0ES (view map)
