Talking about Social Prescribing in Portsmouth
Ellenor Gray, the Manager for our new Social Prescribing and My Time Service in Portsmouth appeared on Express FM to chat with Miles Henson about how this service can support you. We have worked in the city for over 30 years, so are passionately Portsmouth, too.
My Time supports carers, helping them to have a break, as we know caring can be quite challenging. Our staff and volunteers are flexible. They will work with you to create a plan of activities and outings that your loved one might like to do on a good day. We will also plan alternatives for quiet days.
The Social Prescribing service helps people with their mental health. The approach prescribes a holistic response to people’s needs through an alternative activity rather than medication. They support people whose health and wellbeing are affected by financial pressures, social isolation or lack of confidence.
