Social Prescribing

Social prescribing is the term given when community-based solutions are identified for people;

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing

Active Black Country are partnering with the West Midlands Combined Authority to deliver a walking and cycling social prescribing programme in the summer of 2021.

To download the programme brochure, click the link – Walking and Cycling in the Black Country

We will be working with 16 social prescribing providers, including PCNs, Voluntary Sector Councils and Housing Associations.

Last year Active Black Country delivered a pilot called Roll and Stroll and this programme is an extension of that delivery.

If you are currently delivering a scheme that you think would be suitable for community referrals, please email Michael Salmon

This programme was made possible by the Active Travel Fund, following the Department for Transport grant to Transport for West Midlands, part of West Midlands Combined Authority.
