In early 2020, I became aware of two things that have greatly influenced the course of my life and will continue to do so. One has been Covid-19 and the other has been the concept of social prescribing. Covid-19 gave me access to a larger community due to the number of online forums, lectures, hearings and meetings where I have learnt continually about the benefits of social prescribing as well as met some of the key people. The Holme Farm project in my area has allowed me to work with an outstanding team and we will make the concept a reality. In all my learnings, one that has had a vast impact is both the work and untimely death of Jo Cox MP; remembering her powerful words - we have far more in common than that which divides us.
Honouring this concept in my community will continue to be my aim throughout 2022 and beyond.
