Social Prescribing – Digital & Virtual Remote Support

October 20, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

This webinar is part of the National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP) Accelerating Innovation and Thriving Communties programmes. The webinars have closed captions and live BSL interpretation as standard.

Digital and virtual remote support is becoming an increasingly essential lifeline across our communities with helplines in particular being unsung heroes. Telephone befriending schemes, online craft or exercise sessions, and carers groups meeting on Facebook – the scope of activities is wide. Technology can provide new ways to support people, but how can it be used effectively to complement in-person support?

This webinar will explore digital and virtual remote access in supporting health and wellbeing. Some of this is longstanding whilst other examples have developed in response to Covid and now attract ongoing engagement. The event will hear from projects from across the country including the Royal Voluntary Service’s Virtual Village Hall, Age UK’s national helpline, Sense’s digital buddying scheme and the RSPB’s wildlife virtual streaming project.
