Recruiting Social Prescribing Champions and Supporting the Socially Isolated

September 15, 2021

As the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions ease and life returns to some form of normality, BHFA and partner organisations Care for Our City, Together Co and Time to Talk Befriending (TTTB) have started a dialogue with other members of the Faith Council as to how the faith community could best support people who are lonely and socially isolated, a situation that has been exacerbated by the national lockdowns with many people reporting deteriorating mental health.

A project most likely involving social prescribing champions and a buddying scheme is currently being discussed and more information will be available soon.
