After five highly successful years the PEP social prescribing service has now closed but for the best of reasons - the case for social prescribing has been proven in Leeds and the service will move into the new citywide service Linking Leeds.

This is a merger of PEP, Connect for Health and Connect Well into one unified service.

During the project, we have worked with over 4,000 people focusing on what is the most important issue for each individual.

It has been a truly person centred approach.

Many thanks to our partners in delivering PEP. including Leeds Mind, Better Leeds Communities and Touchstone (in the first two years).

And, of course, to the dedicated staff team who delivered the work and have made it so successful.
