  • Understanding Social Prescribing – Study identifies new insights from services in Cork

    Understanding Social Prescribing – Study identifies new insights from services in Cork

    Social Prescribing is a new approach to supporting population health and well-being that is based on the assumption that people’s health needs could be better addressed if their social, emotional and practical needs were met. It is an approach which involves linking healthcare service users with non-clinical sources of support in their local communities through Civil Society Organisations. A recent University College Cork study explored understandings of this approach in Cork amongst stakeholder groups involved in services using a social prescribing approach. The findings of this project have highlighted the potential for social prescribing as a new space for supporting health and well-being and has defined and documented key components of the social prescribing approach.

    Beyond Capitalism: Mapping an Eco-Social Future

    As a recent report by seventeen top scientists alerts us to the 'ghastly future of mass extinction' and climate disruption that faces us, it is clear that the public discourse is beginning to move beyond a fixation with techno-fixes and focus on the central challenges of mapping a radically alternative social future. In this talk, hosted by SHEP Earth Aware and the UCC Environmental Research Institute, Prof. Peadar Kirby will argue that our societies are shaped by the interrelationship of state, market and society which constitutes our social model, and that we urgently need to address what kind of social model can get us to a low-carbon future.
