Invitation to the WSSPR Social Prescribing Evaluation Forum 

Session 6 - Enhancing student wellbeing by working together across communities

At the Wales School for Social Prescribing Research we host three social prescribing evaluation forums per year. This event is the sixth in the series (Year 2, Session 3) and the theme for the session is ENHANCING STUDENT WELL-BEING BY WORKING TOGETHER ACROSS COMMUNITIES.  The aim of the forums is to provide a place for discussion and resources to support social prescribers and community groups in conducting evaluation and monitoring.  

We are inviting members of the Wales Social Prescribing Research Network and the three Welsh Communities of Practice to participate, initially spaces will be limited to 25 people per session and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We would suggest that 1-2 people per organisation sign up to each session. There will be a waiting list in the event that the forum is oversubscribed.

We will host these forums on Microsoft Teams and joining instructions will be sent to attendees prior to each event.
