Social Prescribing Development and Training
Over the past decade the Bromley by Bow Centre has worked extensively to support the development and growth of social prescribing nationally and internationally. We are founding members of the National Social Prescribing Network and are Social Prescribing Regional Facilitators for London for NHS England. Our social prescribing schemes have grown and developed substantially over the last decade allowing us to develop significant experience and insight which we share with others.
Our research project, Unleashing Healthy Communities, aims to create a deeper understanding of the Bromley by Bow model, with a particular focus on the mechanisms which work to improve health and wellbeing and the social determinants of health. In June 2018, we published the results of our two year, embedded research project.
Knowledge Share & 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.
