Green Social Prescribing development grants

11 July, 2023

Healthier with Nature is the Green Social Prescribing Programme for Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire.

Green social prescribing places good mental and physical health at the heart of people’s lives in their local community. It builds on individual interests and empowers people to play an active role in developing and maintaining their health. GPs, link workers and other professionals refer people to local, non-clinical nature-based activities such as walking, gardening, animal care, conservation, art or nature connection programmes.
