VC Connect for Wellbeing

Shaping the future of community healthcare

In response to NHS England’s 5 year Forward View, new partnerships are developing between GPs and voluntary and community services, and social prescribing is quickly becoming an integral element of our healthcare.

Connect for Wellbeing

The voluntary sector is at the heart of social prescribing. Our sector offers a wealth of cost effective support and services to improve health and wellbeing, and tackle isolation.  We can reduce pressure on health and care services by connecting the public and patients with quality assured community support and services.

VC Connect for Wellbeing

Designed in collaboration with successful social prescribing schemes around the country, VC Connect for Wellbeing is an innovative service that specifically supports this new approach to care and wellbeing.

Comprehensive directory of local services

Providing a gateway into local voluntary and community services, the online directory promotes the latest activities and services in your local area.

Sophisticated search function

Quickly search to find the best support available locally to meet your needs, searching by postcode, service category or specific needs.

Social prescription & direct referral

Authorised users working with an individual (i.e. GPs, community nurses, health champions) can create a social prescription and be directly referred to approved service providers. There is a self-referral option also available, allowing the general public to refer themselves directly to services too.

Captures valuable data

Connect for Wellbeing captures an individual’s information, and records their journey. In addition, voluntary and community organisations can register online and upload their own details, ensuring the directory is always up to date with their latest service information.

Flexible system, so it can be tailored to your project

The platform can be used either as a faciltated service (e.g. with a GP, community nurse, or Social Prescriber), or as a self-service option for the general public to search for local services, and can be completely tailored to your project’s needs.
