Information and Guidance

Social prescribing is a service that helps people find out about opportunities in their local community that could help them to improve their health and wellbeing.


There are a number of local social prescribing services operating in Surrey which are free to use, although some of the opportunities or support you are signposted to may carry a charge. The service will discuss this with you and help you find opportunities that are affordable for you. There is a huge range of free support options available in communities which the social prescribing service will help you find and access.


For further details including how to access your local social prescribing service, please visit the Social Prescribing Information Page
