Social Prescribing

Social Prescribing is the provision of non-medical supports for people to improve their health and wellbeing. It’s an easy-going, fun and interactive programme for anyone aged over 18yrs in Dublin 15 who feels that they need some extra support. It supports the health and wellbeing of people in the Dublin 15 area using community-based activities, supports and services and can be of great help to a person who feels isolated, stressed or anxious.

You, or a family member acting on your behalf, can access social prescribing by phoning Empower or by asking your GP or other Healthcare Professional to refer you by phone or letter. The Social Prescriber will contact you, and you will work together to decide what community activities you may like to take part in, and what results you would like from taking part in the programme.

The Social Prescriber will be able to help you access and attend your chosen activities. Activities include exercise, arts, health, education, holistic therapies, relaxation, book clubs, gardening and more.
