At Lidget Green Primary School we are passionate about promoting positive mental health and wellbeing amongst all members of our school community. We recognise the impact healthy minds and bodies have on securing the best possible outcomes for all and work hard to ensure that we use all available opportunities to support the wellbeing of our pupils, staff and families.
Treacle is a free and easy-to-use social prescribing directory. It gathers together information about small local groups, as well as national help and support, into one site.
Although a personal relationship with a specific GP can be therapeutic, it is also becoming a decreasing reality for many people. Access to good social prescribing information can open up possibilities which will decrease reliance on GPs. Knowing where to access the information to do this is an important part of the journey, and that is the aim of Treacle. (click on the image to visit the treacle website)
