Social Prescribing

Our Social Prescribing service Connect for Health has provided invaluable support to people of Leeds South & East for almost 4 years. From Friday 30th September the Connect for Health service will end as it transitions, along with PEP and Connect Well, to start a new and exciting city -wide Social Prescribing service called Linking Leeds. Connect for Health are therefore closed to new referrals.

Existing clients of the service can still contact their Wellbeing Coordinator on their mobile number but we are asking anyone enquiring about how to refer to contact Linking Leeds on 0113 336 7612 after Monday 9th September.

We would like to thank you for your support over the last four years. We are very excited to be able to offer a city wide service from Monday 2nd September.

The Connect for Health team


Social Prescribing services in Leeds will support you to access local community groups and activities to help you make a positive change and improve your mental health and wellbeing. You will be supported either in a group or in a one-to-one setting to help you to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to self-manage your condition.
