East Hants Social Prescribers

  • Swan medical group

  • Liphook & Liss

  • Pinewood

The GP practice can refer you to them for help with many aspects of wellbeing from mental health and social isolation - which has obviously been huge during this year. They also work with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, dementia, carer support, financial support, housing, finding hobbies for people locally etc. It’s basically trying to find holistic approaches to improve people’s lives.

Men's Sheds

Newly establishing themselves in our area, these organisations aim to offer people the opportunity to work together, using our collective practical, hands-on skills and life experiences to support local community and charitable projects as well as our own hobbies and interests. The benefits of the group are support, inclusion and good company.

The Men’s Shed is an international organisation set up originally in Australia in the 90’s to help alleviate potential isolation of men possibly caused by loneliness, retiring from work, bereavement or medical reasons. Today there are over 670 Men’s Sheds in the UK alone, coordinated through the UK Men's Shed Association.

New Members are welcome select the Image to go to either of these sheds
