Thriving Communities Programme

Thriving Communities Programme

We were London’s regional development partner for the National Academy of Social Prescribing (NASP) Thriving Communities Programme, which launched in October 2019 and ran until March 2023.

This was an exciting support programme for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups, supporting communities alongside social prescribing link workers to build upon their current activities.
