Unlocking Sustainable Social Prescribing with Multi-Sector funding streams

Unlocking Sustainable Social Prescribing with Multi-Sector funding streams
Member News

Multi-sector funding streams are important for social prescribing as it helps to address the complex needs of individuals by considering not only their medical conditions but their social, economic, and environmental factors too. Through using multi-sector funding streams you can ensure your social prescribing service has multiple organisations and sectors helping to create a more holistic approach to reducing health inequalities and the social determinants of health

This month at Access Elemental Social Prescribing we are working hard to explain what the impacts of having multi-sector funding streams are compared to a single funding stream and how it can help social prescribing services become more sustainable in the future. 

How do multi-sector funding streams help make social prescribing more sustainable?

Having multi-sector funding streams helps make social prescribing more sustainable in a variety of different ways. 

One of the biggest ways it makes social prescribing more sustainable is through offering social prescribing services more diverse interventions to be available across the community to cater to every need. It also then encourages different groups and organisations to offer the resources needed for more targeted groups. 

This enhanced collaboration therefore not only improves outcomes but also it encourages different organisations to use a better co-production approach to work together towards common goals and enable better communication between groups to improve their community health and wellbeing further. 

Often relying on single funding streams can make social prescribing more vulnerable to changes and can increase the risk of not securing funding in the future. By having multi-sector funding streams therefore social prescribing services can diversify their funding to create a more stable and sustainable funding program and reduce the risk of discontinuation due to funding issues. 

This has been crucial for Warm Wales, one of our customers, as they have found that through being able to highlight the importance of social prescribing in housing they have been able to tackle issues surrounding fuel poverty, and the cost of living crisis to ensure people across Wales are living in warmer, safer, and healthier homes, without having to worry if they can pay their next heating bill. 

They have been able to continue to build and develop the work they do through working with us and ensuring they can show the progress and impact social prescribing has on individuals. Through using our social prescribing platform they have been able to show the true value of social prescribing to other sectors and organisations and persuade them to get involved.  Because of this they have been able to continuously and successfully secure more funding from different organisations. They have also just recently been able to get involved in a project with both The Health Board and The Dragons Rugby Team to help ensure everyone is living in warmer and safer homes this winter.  

How can Access Elemental Social Prescribing help you secure more multi-sector funding streams?

Like discussed above through being able to track every step of someone’s social prescribing journey you are able to see the true vale of social prescribing and impact it can have on the individual and their community too. 

Here our safe and assured pathways help enable social prescribing to work regardless of the sector and demonstrate how when done correctly, social prescribing can add social value back into the community. Through being able to record all the information in one place it makes it easier to record data and information as well as reduce the risk of losing information due to relying on spreadsheets or paper processes. 

Digital social prescribing therefore provides the best evidence for social prescribing and can help you show that social prescribing really does work to secure more funding from various sources in the future. This prevents your social prescribing service relying on one funding source as well as allow you to share resources across a number of organisations to cater to every individual need, so no one is left with their needs unmet. 

At Access Elemental we want to show people how the social prescribing model can work and be adapted to work in a variety of sectors to gain multi-sector funding streams needed to make your program more sustainable in the future. 

Later this month we are holding a webinar to explain this further by explaining how social prescribing works in housing, its impacts, and why having innovations in social prescribing is vital for your community. We would love for you to join us and be part of our discussion, sign up to our webinar today, and we cannot wait to see you there. 

Here at Access Elemental we think it is crucial you find the best methods to measure the impacts of social prescribing as digital social prescribing is a great way to prove how it works and help gain more funding in the future. 

We know that having multi-sector funding streams can help make social prescribing more sustainable and we have helped many of our customers achieve that. For more information on how our social prescribing software can help you contact us today.
