The National Academy of Social Prescribing (NASP) have launched a new Thriving Communities fund to support local voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise projects that bring together place-based partnerships to improve and increase the range and reach of available social prescribing community activities – especially for those people most impacted by COVID19 and health inequalities.
Their aims include to increase social connectedness and help communities cope with COVID-19.
