Natural England are working in partnership with the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) to identify and develop opportunities for people to utilise nature-based activities for social prescribing.
Social prescribing is a way for health professionals to connect people to activities in the community for practical and emotional support, in order to improve their health and wellbeing. The term 'green prescribing' is used to describe the social prescription of nature-based interventions on land, for example gardening and walking groups. The term 'blue prescribing' is used to describe the social prescription of nature-based interventions around water, for example paddle boarding and fishing.
If you offer nature-based activities or any form of social prescribing within Greater London, to support the health and wellbeing of the community, we would be grateful if you could take the time to complete this survey (approx. 5 minutes completion time).
The results will help inform NASP decisions, identify areas for future funding, and enable us to identify organisations currently present that offer nature-based/ social prescribing activities, and whether they may be able to offer social-prescriptions in their local area, while connecting more people to nature.
