Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Board is facilitating a conference on 15 November 2023 which celebrates the best of social prescribing across our integrated partnership. There will be some rich sharing of the activity being undertaken in local communities from partners representing our Alliances, The Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise Sector and Local Authorities. There will be a reflection on where we have been as a system, where we are now and what the future looks like continuing to work in ever closer partnership. We will hear of an amazing degree apprenticeship opportunity across sector and the superb Frontline referrals system.

 Social Prescribing, in its many forms, helps people to proactively stay out of needing acute support, being supported in communities more appropriately. We have some amazing speakers from across our system sharing from Primary Care, the Essex Wellbeing Service, Basildon and Brentwood Specialist Social Prescribing Unit, Community360, Thurrock CVS, Southend Association of Voluntary Services, and Active Essex.
