Developing green social prescribing offers: A case study with Harcourt Arboretum, Oxford
Stephanie Tierney, Jordan Gorenberg
During the first half of 2023, researchers from the Oxford Social Prescribing Research Network (University of Oxford) conducted a study to address the question: What are the experiences and views of stakeholders around setting up green social prescribing? The study aimed to identify areas for consideration and learning points for others intending to undertake such work. It involved staff from Harcourt Arboretum in Oxford and staff involved in social prescribing (mainly link workers). As this research set out to explore in-depth the experiences and perspectives of individuals, a qualitative approach was adopted.
