Community and voluntary groups and Social Prescribing

New Connections is the Social Prescribing service for the Derbyshire Dales, based at Derbyshire Dales CVS.

Social Prescribing is a way of supporting and improving people’s health and wellbeing outside of traditional medical settings. Our Social Prescribers are Debbie Rushworth and Harriet Brown.

The local community and voluntary sector is an integral part of Social Prescribing, as very often Debbie and Harriet will be looking for a group or an activity to arrange a visit to.

The last 15 months have clearly been quite tricky for this kind of work as many of our Member groups at DDCVS have had to pause completely or ‘move on-line’. Now that restrictions are easing, we would be very interested to hear from your group about its plans for the summer or from September onwards, all being well.

Please contact the Development Team at DDCVS by emailing enquiries@ddcvs.org.uk or telephoning 01629 812154.
