Self-Care

What is Social Prescribing?

Social prescribing works alongside and supports traditional medical interventions by linking people up to voluntary and community groups and other non-clinical services. Social prescribing is a way to help people make positive changes in their lives by giving them the knowledge, skills and the confidence to do so.

What is Self-Care? 

Self-Care is the actions that people take to maintain and improve their own health and wellbeing.

KCSC support the voluntary and community sector to provide Self-Care/Social Prescribing services to the community by advocating for funding and managing contracts.
