Making Connections Walsall

Making Connections Walsall Programme (MCW) – MCW adopts a Social Prescribing approach providing GPs, Health & Social Care professionals, other partners, service users and their carers with a single route of referral into community social support to address loneliness and social isolation amongst Walsall’s older population.  It has prioritised MCW for older people in the first instance and intends to extend the model to incorporate other groups during 2018/2019- 2019/2020. The NHS long term plan references the expansion of social prescribing.  In Walsall, Social prescribing began with Making Connections Walsall and is to be extended through the newly established primary care network and housing providers.
