Useful Resources

There are many local, regional and national policies, papers and frameworks for social prescribing that exist in England, Scotland, Wales and the island of Ireland and beyond. In our quest to build, gather and share a strong body of evidence in Ireland (North and South) to support the impact of Social Prescribing, we are sharing some of the documents and resources that have helped guide our fellow social prescribing champions here in other parts of the world:
