Are you a Voluntary, Community or Faith Sector organisation working with the residents of Lancashire or South Cumbria?

If so, Active Lancashire and Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria would like to hear from you.

Active Lancashire are carrying out a survey as part of a piece of research to develop a better understanding of the ‘digital picture’ and views on social prescribing of Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector organisations in Lancashire and South Cumbria. We are keen to hear from organisations of all different sizes, from large county wide charities to small community based groups.

What does that mean?

From a digital perspective, the survey is looking at information such as does your organisation have a website, do you use social media, are you part of an online directory, would you be interested in increasing your digital presence and if so what support might you need to do that.

From a social prescribing point of view, the survey is looking at information such as do you know what social prescribing is, are you interested in being part of a social prescribing programme, what factors might affect you being part of a programme and what support you might need.

What is the aim of the project?

1) To provide a ‘digital picture’ of Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector organisations in Lancashire and South Cumbria in order to help inform the digital strategy for Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.

2) Provide an understanding of Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector organisations interest, readiness and support requirements to be part of a social prescribing programme.


The survey can be found by following the link below and your time to complete it would be greatly appreciated.

All those completing the survey have the option to be entered into a draw to win one of four £25 Amazon vouchers.
