Gardening and health

New Connections is the Social Prescribing service for the Derbyshire Dales, based at Derbyshire Dales CVS.

Social Prescribing is a way of supporting and improving people’s health and wellbeing outside of traditional medical settings.

In the Derbyshire Dales, GP’s, nurses and other primary health professionals can refer someone to New Connections, who will start by having a conversation with the person about what matters to them. From there, the person will be introduced to activities, groups or services that enable them to get the most out of life. Examples of this could include gardening clubs, art groups, volunteering opportunities, healthy cooking classes or befriending services.
