Training Support in Sport & Physical Activity for social prescribers – Thursday 09 June, 10am

London Sport has a vision to make the capital the most active city in the world and to achieve this we have identified a need to work with a wider workforce.

One workforce we have recognised as being important in helping inactive people become more active is the Social Prescribing sector. We have created and piloted a new training programme for London’s social prescribing network and, after learning from that experience, we are now in a position to roll the training out online.

How the session will run:

  • This one-day training programme has been split into two half-day sessions, users must be able to attend both sessions.
  • Day One: Thursday 9th June, 10am-1pm.
  • Day Two: Thursday 16th June, 10am-1pm.
  • One ticket purchase enables attendance at both days.

The session will seek to:

  • Upskill staff and volunteers working in social prescribing on sport and physical activity.
  • Help staff and volunteers to be more confident in advocating sport and physical activity to their clients.
  • Support inactive Londoners to become more active.

Interested candidates should:

  • Be involved in the provision of an established social prescribing service, either as a link worker or social prescriber.
  • Be keen to improve their knowledge of physical activity and sport.
  • Be available, online, for both sessions (three hours each) and attend a follow-up session after three months (one hour in duration).
