Social Mirror

Social Mirror used digital tools to link people to local projects that could help their health and wellbeing.

We worked with the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) to develop an application that would give people a ‘social prescription’ which would direct them to community activities or groups – instead of being prescribed drugs or other health interventions.

Launched in February 2013, the application was used in the William Budd Health Centre over a 12 month period. Patients were asked to complete a short questionnaire on tablet computers and were then given their ‘social prescription’.

The project came out of  RSA research in the area, where over 350 people in Knowle West were interviewed to find out about their social networks. The project aimed to improve the wellbeing of people aged 18-30 and over 65 by increasing their community involvement and helping them build social connections.
