Social Prescriber

1D X8835

Social Prescribers usually work in a GP surgery, health centre or community organisation and connect people with non-medical support to improve general well-being and tackle social isolation.

Social prescribers tend to be employed by local authorities, community groups or the NHS, to:

  • Assess people’s care and support needs
  • Link people with local support services
  • Track people’s progress and improvement

Entry requirements:

  • No set formal qualifications required, but you will need to demonstrate experience of volunteering in social care and health
  • Social care qualifications (Level 2/3 Diploma in Health and Social Care) may be helpful to your application
  • Level 3 Qualification in Social Prescribing may be an advantage


The Kings Fund have put together more information on Social Prescribing, as have NHS England.   Further information can also be found on National Association of Link Workers
