HAPPI Hour - Social Prescribing: it’s a better prescription

Event date

Presentation notes and slides



  • Thought provoking and good to hear the diversity in this topic.
  • Insightful and provided a lot of things to think about!
  • Very stimulating, it's an opportunity to bring this thinking into the DNA of future development, rather than as an after thought. 
  • Some very imaginative work showcasing social prescribing projects


With a backdrop to the Housing LIN’s concept of CollaborAGE, this HAPPI Hour session will:

  • showcase examples of innovative practice in social prescribing by housing associations and others
  • how social prescribing pathways can be identified and maximised through connections with housing
  • share lessons learned in how housing organisations can work with other sector partners to support health and wellbeing 
  • with Covid-19 in mind, report on how social prescribing has enabled customers to achieve greater resilience

What's on the agenda?

Could you play a part in Accelerating Innovation in Social Prescribing?

The Accelerating Innovation programme (opens new window) brings together voluntary organisations in a Community of Practice, who can support health and wellbeing through social prescribing activities, help address health inequalities, and aid COVID-19 recovery strategies.

Accelerating Innovation is a partnership between the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP), Royal Voluntary Service (RVS), and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I).

Who is it for?

This webinar is for organisations who want to develop new initiatives and partnerships around housing, to support people through social prescribing. As well as housing providers and developers, this event will bring together voluntary organisations from sports, arts, health, education and more to share learning across sectors.

This will be the first in a series of events and workshops to bring people together around new partnerships and projects. Sign up to this webinar to find out more.
