Social prescribing and navigation services in Islington

We spoke to 154 residents from migrant communities about their experiences of social prescribing and navigation services

Summary

  • 11 people had used social prescribing and navigation services funded by the NHS. Awareness of these services was low.
  • 123 people had used social prescribing and navigation services provided by the community organisation that supported them. They were seen as easy to use and effective.
  • These community organisations do not receive NHS funding to provide these services. If they are to be relied on to meet this need, it is important that they are properly resourced.
