Established in 1975 to develop volunteering and communities, we are now leaders in social prescribing and other innovative approaches to improve wellbeing in communities. We work both directly with partners to provide vital community services and activities for people to improve health, happiness and wellbeing; empowering people and communities to live well and to tackle the root causes of ill health including isolation, loneliness, disadvantage, and frailty.
