Offaly Well Connected - Social Prescribing

Offaly Well Connected, social prescribing project is based in Tullamore. It is a collaborative, holistic and a community approach to Health and Wellbeing. This referral service provides one to one consultation that aims to reduce loneliness and social isolation by linking people with resources of support within their local community. Social Prescribing Co-ordinator support provides you with an opportunity to:

• Learn a new skill or participate in a new activity

• Meet new people

• Receive social support from others

• Increase your confidence and self esteem

• Become involved in your community

• Feel better about your health and well being

 

The Social Prescribing Co-ordinator meets the individual, helps identify their chosen activity, and provides follow up support as necessary.

This free service is available to you if you are over 18 and need help to link with services within your community to get you active again. Your GP or clinician will refer you to the Social Prescribing Coordinator if you are suitable for the programme or you can self-refer.
