Self-Care Directory

The Social Prescribing (Self-Care) directory has been created to improve links between health professionals and the voluntary and community sector.

Selecting more than one category will only return results that provide all of those services

We will support you with basic household tasks, such as doing shopping or cooking together, help with attending appointments, going to the gym or other leisure activities, or just going for a coffee and a chat. The activities are many and varied and will be agreed at the initial assessment meeting.
