Project Director: Chris Dayson
Project Duration: 2021-2023
The Preventing and Tackling Mental Ill Health through Green Social Prescribing Project (Green Social Prescribing Project) is part of a £5.77m cross governmental initiative looking at how connecting people with nature can help well-being and improve mental health.
The evaluation will inform wider rollout of green social prescribing (GSP) following the test and learn (T&L) initiative. It will improve understanding of what works, for whom, in what circumstances and why. We are also interested in impact, mental health and other relevant outcomes and value-for-money of GSP, as well as how these data are collected, costs in different parts of the system and challenges to data collection.
CRESR is also involved in the implementation and evaluation of South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Test and Learn Site that has been funded as part of the national programme. We will support local partners capture and share learning as the project progresses.
