    Social Prescribing Link Workers may do one or more of the following:

    • Make observations from social and wider determinants of health point of view
    • Seek to address what matters to the individual holistically through time to talk and shared decision-making.
    • Facilitate, connect, and link people to the right support and interventations that can help address the identified needs, which in turn helps to improve mental health and physical well-being.
    • Refer to a variety of voluntary and community sector schemes that provide activities and support such as volunteering, exercise groups, gardening, healthy eating, and cooking.
    • Support individuals to be resilient , independent, empowered, and able to unblock barriers to better health and wellbeing which are largely responsible for health inequalities.
