We’re delighted to confirm that Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership has received an in-principle offer of support from the Government’s Life Chances Fund.

This will be used to help us develop and implement a county-wide social prescribing service. Social prescribing is a way of referring people with mental and physical health problems to a range of local, non-clinical services to help them take greater control of their health and wellbeing. Activities are often provided by voluntary and community organisations and can include leisure activities, social groups, exercise and healthy lifestyle advice and support. Further details of this exciting project will be announced in due course.
