Oxford Hub

Project: Community Impact Lab

Oxford Hub is a community focused charity working in Oxford. They support a number of projects, one of which is to support the development and implementation of social prescribing measures in Oxford. Social prescribing is the name given to non-medical holistic interventions that a doctor could prescribe a patient in lieu of medication. These could include social gatherings, walks in nature, trips to a museum, yoga etc...   

Oxford Hub have identified a need for a database of social prescribing measures. The Lab Fellows will begin to build this new database which will provide a better overview of opportunities, allowing for greater collaboration between social prescribers in Oxford, and for better pairing of those in need of social prescribing measures to relevant interventions that are on offer.
