Transformation Partners in Health and Care > Celebrating Social Prescribing Day 2024

We are celebrating this Social Prescribing Day, with a look back over some of the work we have done since last year to support and champion personalised care initiatives across London.
We have worked across a range of projects and initiatives from our Innovators Programme, which supports people on the frontline of social prescribing in London to overcome challenges and improve services’ ability to tackle health inequalities, through developing leadership skills, quality improvement and testing new ways of working.
To our Community Chest projects, which create accessible and local funding pots for the voluntary and community sector to support local activities. Rooted in a collaborative with a needs-led approach to funding that taps into the strengths and insights of a wide range of partners from across the local communities.
As well as our most recent project – Patient Voices for Social Prescribing, which provides a safe space, support and a platform for individuals with lived experience of social prescribing, who want to share their experiences through storytelling and help improve services.

Our vision is for every Londoner to experience Personalised Care, where people are actively involved and connected to activities, groups, and services in their community that meet the practical, social and emotional needs that affect their health and wellbeing.

Around 500 social prescribing link workers, health and wellbeing coaches and care coordinators are based in London’s primary care networks, supporting almost half a million Londoners with personalised care. Our mission is to ensure these personalised care roles, and other community-led preventative services, are thriving.

This supports London’s health and care systems to develop more proactive, preventative and community centred approaches to improve the health and wellbeing of those most impacted by health inequity.
