Australia’s Only Social Prescribing Conference

Social prescribing can address major risk factors for poor health by linking individuals to non-medical services and resources within their community.

This year’s conference will explore how social prescribing can improve Australians’ health and wellbeing through Arts and Culture, Nature, and Communities.

Conference highlights include:

  • Keynote Speakers and Panel Discussions
    Listen to international and national experts in social prescribing implementation; social prescribing research and impact assessment; integrated care; health and social care policy making; and place-based service innovation.
  • Networking Opportunities
    Engage with peers, leaders, and innovators across different sectors.


Making New Connections

Our goal for conference attendees is to foster relationships across multi-disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries to create initiatives that impact policy and practice.

Join us at ASPIRE's conference to learn more from experts and thought leaders about innovative strategies and successful implementations of social prescribing.

Together, let’s consider how to transform the health and wellbeing of fellow Australians through social prescribing services that integrate arts and culture, nature, and communities.
