Embedding work and related outcomes into social prescribing: Overcoming challenges and maximising opportunities

In recent years, there has been increasing interest from policymakers in social prescribing as a means of improving public health and wellbeing, including recognition of its role in supporting individuals in finding and retaining work.

This report from The Work Foundation investigates whether changing policy emphasis has influenced social prescribing in practice, and explores the value attached to work and the degree to which barriers to embedding work-related outcomes persist. This research was conducted with the aim of informing policymakers about the realities of social prescribing, and whether policy aspiration have come closer to being realised.
