SINGAPORE COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE IN SOCIAL PRESCRIBING (SCOMP)

 

A collaborative network of healthcare professionals, community leaders, and practitioners committed to advancing social prescribing for health and well-being in Singapore.

Built on the foundation of best practices in knowledge sharing, community engagement, and inter-sectoral collaboration, SCOMP aims to enhance effectiveness of social prescribing initiatives in Singapore.

"More than 80 percent of health outcomes are related to
non-medical factors –  these are conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age, also known as social determinants of health.
Social prescribing addresses these social determinants of health by linking patients and clients to community assets to improve wellbeing."

Social Prescribing in Singapore

Social prescribing is an innovative approach to connecting people with non-medical sources of support within their local community. It is a way of linking individuals to a range of local, non-clinical services, such as community groups, arts activities, and other voluntary and charity organisations. This helps people to gain a greater understanding of their own wellbeing, while providing them with an opportunity to access meaningful activities and services that can help them to improve their mental and physical health. Social prescribing encourages individuals to take an active role in managing their own health and wellbeing and can play an important role in supporting individuals to stay healthy and well.
