Social Prescribing

Social prescribing involves helping patients to improve their health, wellbeing and social welfare by connecting them to community services which might be run by the council or a local charity. 

 Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing

 Social prescribing link workers are becoming an integral part of the multi-disciplinary teams in primary care networks (PCN's) and we are lucky to have Ellie Moseley working closely with us to support us alongside medical treatment as part of personalised care.

Barnardo's Exceed website

Barnardo's has launched their new Exceed website: www.barnardosexceed.org.uk
 
The aim of the site is to provide a one stop shop for families, young people and professionals across Devon and Cornwall around Child Sexual Exploitation, and to make sure they can then triage, signpost and support young people who need services.

Please contact them about any young people who need the service, either via the referral form which can be downloaded now from the contact us page or via the online proforma which can be found there too.

Cornwall Menopause Clinic

We know that stigma can be a huge barrier for those accessing reproductive healthcare, whatever their age and stage of life. That's why we are delighted to have secured new funding from the Department of Health and Social Care Women’s Health and Wellbeing Fund to fight stigma and improve the lives of Cornwall residents experiencing menopause in the workplace.

Brook's new Menopause Support Programme will empower women and those experiencing menopause to feel supported to remain in work or return to work. We will do this through tailored 1:1 support, addressing stigma and raising awareness of the impact the menopause can have within the workplace. We will also provide practical support to local businesses to redevelop their policies and procedures so that they are inclusive of people experiencing the menopause.

If you would like any more information regarding this project please email cornwallmenopauseproject@brook.org.uk
