The Health Tree project offers a holistic programme of activities to help promote wellbeing and alleviate isolation, loneliness, depression, mental health issues, and the effects of Covid, with a wider aim of increasing access to ‘social prescribing’ in Tower Hamlets.
Social prescribing is a rapidly expanding field whereby the NHS and GPs can prescribe non-medical support as a way of improving a patient’s chances of recovering from their illness. This can range from gardening to meditation and will typically be offered by local community partners.
The Health Tree activities include meditation, movement, nutrition workshops, yoga, acupuncture, massage, woodwork, local heritage workshop, dance, theatre production, language courses and even legal services. There will also be a regular Covid Café that will offer support to local people who have been affected by Covid-19 and are suffering from Long Covid, loss or anxiety.
As well as these activities, there will a series of talks, discussions and networking opportunities that will build links between social prescribers and local community groups with the aim of increasing the number of social prescribing referrals within the borough.
This one-year project will see a rollout of activities across the borough and will culminate in the Branching Out Festival that will celebrate the work that has been achieved by The Health Tree partners and community members over the course of the project.
This project has been organised by St Margaret’s House and is funded by The National Academy of Social Prescribing, The Thriving Communities Fund, The Arts Council
