Wales Social Prescribing Research Network

Our new Wales Social Prescribing Research Network (WSPRN) webpage has everything you need to know about the project which is developing an evidence base for social prescribing in Wales.

WSPRN, established earlier this year, brings together academics, the third sector, citizens, practitioners and managers from across health and social care, public sector commissioners, the independent sector and other stakeholders. The network, which aims to develop the evidence base for social prescribing in Wales, is primarily a virtual platform with over 170 members.

WSPRN also supports the three communities of practice in North, West and East Wales which come together to discuss social prescribing. A series of face-to-face meetings have and continue to take place across Wales to discuss, through a consensus approach, the key research questions for the Network to take forward.

The Network is funded through Health and Care Research Wales (Wales School for Social Care Research Capacity Building Small Grants Award 2018).

Visit the WSPRN page to find out more.
