As seen on our social media! Here are some details to clarify what thriving communities is and who should apply.
Thriving Communities is a new national support programmeprovided by the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP), launched in 2020. The programme aims to bring all types of voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups in England to work alongside social prescribing link workers. A further aim is to create collaboration at the local across different sectors of community activity – social/welfare, the arts and sports and leisure.
A current opportunity open to both voluntary and community sector representatives and those working in social prescribing services are the regional Learning Together sessions taking place this autumn.
Learning Together is a flexible programme of regional learning and development activities for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups and organisations supporting their communities’ needs through delivery of social prescribing activities.
More details about how to apply can be found at this link – places for the South East Learning Together programme are still open and representation from Hampshire-based groups would be most welcome.
