Salford CVS is working with the University of Salford to map social prescribing provision across Greater Manchester. This is an important piece of work as it will help to determine the extent of social prescribing provision as we move forward across GM to develop social prescribing models as part of our Person and Community-Centred Approaches programme.
The aim of this project is to create a 'map' of social prescribing for the whole of GM so that we can understand the great work that's already happening, lift out the beacons of good practice and help share information and ideas across GM.
The project is also carrying out a 'deep dive' into the pathways and arrangements for social prescribing activity in one district (Salford).
To make it as easy as possible for you, the surveys have been tailored for those who either (1) deliver services that are prescribed to or (2) those who carry out the 'prescribing' and make referrals. Please complete the relevant survey via the link below.
If you are working anywhere in Greater Manchester (but not Salford):
(1) Please use this link if you receive social prescribing referrals to your service https://salford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/cvs-questionnaire-providers-gm
(2) Please use this link if you carry out referrals or do social 'prescribing' https://salford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/cvs-questionnaire-gm
If you are working in Salford only:
(1) Please use this link if you receive social prescribing referrals to your service in Salford https://salford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/cvs-questionnaire-providers-salford
(2) Please use this link if you provide referrals/ do social prescribing in Salford https://salford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/cvs-questionnaire-salford
Please note that if your organisation delivers the same work in Salford AND in other GM districts, please complete only the Salford survey and not the GM one. The deadline for completion of this survey is Friday 11th May 2018.
Should you have any questions or any trouble in opening the survey link, please get in touch with Andrea Gibbons (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 0161 295 6371).
A Plenary event is being planned for the 24th May, at which the preliminary results will be shared. If you would like to attend this event, please make sure that you give your contact details at the end of the questionnaire.
The final report will be shared at the GM Person and Community-Centred Approaches Conference in July 2018.
