<p>On 23 July 2018 the Department announced funding of £4.5 million for 23 social prescribing schemes across England. Social prescribing involves helping patients to improve their health, wellbeing and social welfare by connecting them to community services. Examples include befriending services, art classes and exercise classes, which might be run by the council or a local charity.</p><p> </p><p>This money is being used to either expand existing schemes or establish new ones. These schemes will aim to reduce health inequalities by building the evidence base around good practice in social prescribing, sharing lessons and widening adoption of practices that are proven to work.</p><p> </p><p>A summary of all 23 schemes can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/social-prescribing-schemes-to-be-funded-by-the-health-and-wellbeing-fund-2018" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/social-prescribing-schemes-to-be-funded-by-the-health-and-wellbeing-fund-2018</a></p>
