Social prescribing is when health professionals direct people to support and activities within their community to improve health and well-being. Discovering local provisions can make it easier to access services, increase social interactions and build a local support network.

We support jobseekers aged 18 and upwards. There is no upper age limit.
For 16 & 17-year-olds needing support, please visit the Jobcentre Plus website.
The Chesham Project
The majority of our groups are open to anyone, so you don’t need to be referred or pre-book. We recommend checking the timetable to see if pre-booking or referral is needed.
We aim to make all our health and wellbeing sessions accessible to the whole of the community. Many of our groups and services are completely free of charge, but if you can donate it helps us to keep services open and accessible.
Some evening groups and classes charge a small fee, see our timetable for full details.
We are open every Monday – Friday from 9 – 5, although some groups run outside of these hours. Please check the timetable for details.
We have no parking at the project.
East Street Car Park – Approx. 5 min walk.
Chesham Moor Gym & Swim Car Park – Approx. 10-15 min walk.
