Social Prescribing in Lambeth
Other Social Prescribing initiatives include:
1. Safe and Independent Living (SAIL) and SAILplus schemes are delivered by Age UK Lambeth. Service receives referrals from Lambeth GPs, self referrals, local acute hospitals and community health and social care teams. Following contact with individual, SAIL will link them directly to appropriate service e.g. financial advice, handyperson, befriending, social groups, dementia support etc. For those individuals contacted who present with more complex issues, SAILplus will discuss with individual concerns and work with the individual to resolve.
2. Project Smith is a localised community development programme with two workstreams - small grants for improving health and wellbeing in a local area; and Community Connectors - interested people who connect others to local support, information, groups, activities. Community Connectors receive Royal Society of Public Health Supporting Behaviour Change training, and meet monthly to share and learn from each other.
3. Primary Care Navigators in GP surgeries and local pharmacies.
