Draft Home Salford Social Prescribing Hub

Based in the University of Salford, we are an interdisciplinary multi professional team – including Occupational Therapists, Nurses, and Social Workers – working to improve social prescribing policy and practice.

The Salford Social Prescribing Hub is at the vanguard of social prescribing – using collaborative approaches to co-create opportunities with our industry partners that support innovative CPD, student learning experiences and co-produced research.

For the last five years we’ve been working regionally and nationally to raise awareness of the value of social prescribing, making connections between services, and improving health outcomes for people and communities.
