Action Planning

Description: Action planning, in the context of social prescribing, is an act performed jointly between the social prescribing practitioner and the individual. Social prescribing practitioners help people identify their social, mental, physical and economic needs through a what matters conversation. They then support the individual to co-produce a bespoke action plan to benefit their health and wellbeing.

The action plan is a document describing a course of action that has been created and agreed upon by the
social prescribing practitioner and the individual. It outlines the goals of the individual and the steps that
will be taken to achieve them.
