Community Builders

Community builders are part of the social prescribing cycle. The team's role is to find, support and create social and activity groups for people to attend and improve their wellbeing so they can be happy and well.

What is social prescribing?

Social prescribing is about linking residents with local community groups and services that offer support and advice to help them, improving self-care and tackling the social causes of ill health and wellbeing. Find out about the whole service on the social prescribing page.

Building the community

As part of community development and social prescribing, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council sport, play and arts team support local communities to help set up new social and activity groups. The team can help search for suitable venues for groups to meet at and help get the group started.
