New Green Social Prescribing Programme Grants

The Humber, Coast and Vale (HCV) Health and Care Partnership has secured funding to develop a ‘test and learn’ site for Green Social Prescribing (GSP) across our six places of East Yorkshire, Hull, North Yorkshire, Vale of York, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

“I contacted Hull CVS right at the beginning when I wanted to set up a group and really needed a lot of guidance to be able do that.  The first thing they did was encourage me to apply for the starter grant. 

In terms of the more practical advice they also gave me advice on becoming a constituted group… They gave us advice on policy and procedures, training on confidentiality and some guidance as well on accounts keeping. 

It means a lot that in a city as large as Hull we can have that social and emotional impact on people that are going through such a sensitive time”.
