Social Prescribing – Friday’s on the Farm

What is social prescribing?

This is when individuals are referred to support within their local community, with the aim of improving their health and wellbeing.

    • A smaller, more intimate group to support people who are just starting on their mental health and wellbeing journey.

    • 10am to 4pm every Friday
    • Our long standing, regular volunteering day is a hands on, physical day of
      volunteering, getting involved in maintenance tasks and conservation around the farm. A rewarding opportunity to meet some of the wider Fordhall family and learn new skills working on some exciting projects, getting stuck in, whatever the weather.
