Made in North Wales Social Prescribing Conference
26 October 2017
One approach to challenging avoidable health inequalities is Social Prescribing. An approach that sees us using our community and social assets collaboratively to respond to the growing demand for non-clinical help that can impact positively on our health and wellbeing.
The ‘Made in North’ Social Prescribing Conference will:
Provide a platform and network for Social Prescribing; launch the initial model/approach across the region; becoming a catalyst for change and mechanism for capturing and evidencing the impact
Demonstrate what is already actively being delivered across the region and learn from those approaches
Innovatively engage and provide space for attendees to be creative with our approaches and evolve these together
Create opportunities to collaborate across sectors, and share learning & debate
Use our community and social assets more effectively, complementing the clinical model and supporting GP’s
Deepen understanding of Social Prescribing and the regional and local approaches across North Wales.

Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, Grow Wild is the national outreach initiative of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Through us millions of people are doing something positive where they live; connecting with wild flowers, plants and places around them, taking notice of nature, getting active, learning new things and sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm. We believe that this simple act of creativity can turn spaces into beautiful, inspiring and colourful wildlife havens; encouraging people to care for and delight in the nature around them. About Anthony and Emma. Between them they run Hyphae Shroomery in Cardigan where they are cultivating value from waste; growing oyster mushrooms on coffee grounds & brewery waste. They first became interested in fungi when they saw a mushroom pop out of the ground on a farm they were working on in the high Andes in Peru. Since then, they’ve been learning as much as possible and following where the fungi lead.
