Cornwall's nature-on-referral service

 

Cornwall Council has today (8th June 2017) launched a consultation on a Nature-on-Referral Service. This involves a hub that will coordinate and support work in this rapidly growing area; using our superb natural environment to make real changes in peoples’ health and wellbeing.  

The full consultation document and a summary on the webpage  is available at http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/doseofnature

The Ecosystems Knowledge Network recently ran the UK's first training day on best practice in commissioning green prescriptions. This was delivered by Dan Bloomfield, who has been working with Cornwall Council to develop a Nature-on-Referral Service.
