These resources were collated by Groundwork as part of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership’s Green Social Prescribing Programme, Nature for Health.

The programme looks at how to tackle and prevent mental ill-health, by offering connection to the natural environment through referral to green or blue social prescribing services. By effectively implementing green social prescribing mental health outcomes can be improved, health inequalities reduced, demand on the health and social care system reduced, and best practice developed at a local level.

The programme partnership was led by Sow the City, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, Petrus, Salford CVS and City of Trees.

These resources have been collated from a range of environmental partners to support the third sector to deliver more Green Social Prescribing activities – we hope that you can utilize them so we can harness the healing powers of nature.
