Social Prescribing is a way of linking individuals with a range of local community services to improve social, emotional and mental wellbeing.

Linking Leeds provides Social Prescribing for all people aged 16 years and above, no matter where they live in the city – while responding to the specific health profiles of communities.

Aims of the service

Our aim is to connect people to services and activities in their community in order to benefit overall health and wellbeing.

We believe that everyone can live a fulfilled life, however, sometimes people need help to achieve this.

Feeling linked to your community has lots of health and wellbeing benefits that support resilience, independence and good physical and mental health.

So, if practical or emotional problems are stopping you feeling your best, Linking Leeds can help you get them sorted.

Our Wellbeing Coordinators are based within GP practices providing one-to-one support over the phone and face to face. Community outreach from GP surgeries and other community locations is undertaken as appropriate.
