Social Prescribing looks beyond purely medical solutions, to develop interventions that can support resilience and recovery.

Our town has been hit particularly hard by Covid, worsening existing health and social inequalities. Thrive enables us to work closely with partners in the borough to provide a programme of activities which will help people to build confidence and connections, express themselves, learn new skills and improve their general health and well-being.

Our Thrive Coordinators, Vicky and James, are now in post and are busy meeting people and setting up programmes of work at The Bureau. From chair yoga to abstract painting, gardening to samba drumming, we hope you will find something to inspire and engage you.

For more information or to get involved email either vicky@bureaublackburn.co.uk or james@bureaublackburn.co.uk or pop in to Place of Welcome at The Bureau on Wednesday mornings from 9.30am - 11.00am.

Thrive is a partnership between The Bureau, Lancashire Wildlife Trust and Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, working the local Social Prescribing Alliance, Social Prescribing Link Workers and Community Connectors to develop The Bureau as a hub for Social Prescribing activity.
