  • Befriending
  • Confidence Building
  • Learning/Training
  • Advice - Benefits, Money Fuel Poverty
  • Housing/Adaptations
  • Carers Support
  • Dementia Support
  • Transport/Mobility
  • Advocacy
  • Mental Health
  • Addiction
  • Disability
  • Domestic Abuse

Once we recieve a referral we undertake an assessment with the aim of referring the patient to an appropriate community based service/s.

Selby District Social Prescribing Service will link patients in primary care and their carers with sources of support within the community to keep people as independent as they can be for longer.
