The Better Connected team works with people over 65 and living in the Medway Towns who are in need of some support to build up their social networks.

Recognising that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health.

The Better Connected team are also delivering free training webinars on social prescribing and a bespoke session can be booked for Groups to find out more and understand how this service works.

Joining a local Friends Group is another route to a holistic outcome for all ages as these Groups are a great way to meet like-minded people nearby who share similar interests and improve and protect the quality of local greenspaces and parks.
