Description

My Best Life is a social prescribing service for Barnsley, funded by Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group.

Social prescribing is a means of enabling professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. Recognising that people’s health is determined primarily by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health.

My Best Life supports people to:

  • Achieve personal goals
  • Regain confidence and resilience
  • Improve emotional wellbeing
  • Manage symptoms
  • Lead healthier lifestyles
  • Improve the home environment
  • Increase community connections
  • Address money management and welfare benefit issues
  • Connect to work and volunteering
  • Improve quality of life

How can My Best Life help you?

Our Social Prescribing Advisors work can support you to unpick matters affecting your wellbeing and achieve personal goals.

With links to the local community and resources, and time to spend with you building an action plan which asks 'what matters to you?', our advisors can support you to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.

Partnership working

My Best Life work closely with partners in the Health and Social Care, local councils and the Voluntary, Community and Enterprise sector. We can support you to access services and work together to achieve the best outcomes.
