All Wales Social Prescribing Network

Activity: OtherTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Public lecture/debate/seminar


The All Wales Social Prescribing Research Network (WSPRN) provides a distinct research direction for social prescribing (SP). SP is being widely implemented with support from public funds whilst there are no clear agreements on definitions and there are questions as to whether it’s worthwhile, effective, value for money. It is co-chaired by Dr Carolyn Wallace (academic lead) and Judith Stone (third sector lead).
Individuals and organisations from across Wales have come together to develop a proposal to create a sustainable research network to build the critical evidence for SP in Wales. Its membership is open to interested individuals and groups and includes members from the third sector, higher education (academics), statutory social care and health organisations (e.g. practitioners, commissioners), members of the public, independent sector and industry members.
