Social Prescribing

The Social Prescribing service at the Bromley by Bow Centre was developed to respond to the high levels of health inequality and deprivation in the local community. Over the past decade the Bromley by Bow Centre has worked extensively to support the development and growth of social prescribing nationally and internationally.

Our research and evaluation

As part of the Insights department, the Research and Evaluation team is composed of community and social researchers who support project evaluation and work on original new community research. A wide range of evaluation reports and tools are being created continually to help the Bromley By Bow Centre’s services delivery programme managers to keep improving to reflect the community’s needs. The tools and learning are made available for other organisations keen to learn from the Centre’s experience to recreate similar models in their own communities.

Knowledge Share and Exchange

The Knowledge Share and Exchange (KSE) programme was created as part of the Insights team following on the raise of interest in the Bromley By Bow Centre’s model.

This has been done traditionally through in-person visits to the Centre, seminars and newsletters. The KSE team is currently working on building a more integrated online platform to facilitate knowledge exchange remotely.
