    As a Social Prescribing Volunteer, you will act as a link between people and all that is happening in their community. This means listening to people, learning what is happening in the community, discussing options, and helping people identify and access support that is right for them. It is about developing rapport, helping people to identify their strengths and hopes as well as support needs, and empowering people to make changes.
