Meet the Team
Want to find out a little more about the ASPALE Erasmus+ project and meet the ASPALE partners who are making all of this possible then just keep reading…
ASPALE has been developed with a clear goal in mind: to promote the principle of social prescribing to key adult education groups across the EU and empower at risk adults to improve their health literacy and take responsibility for their own health. Effective social prescribing is about providing the building blocks for personal learning & knowledge application in a wellbeing context.
Social Prescribing is a powerful, proven community mechanism to improve the physical, emotional, mental wellbeing of adults by connecting them to non-medical community-based sources of supports. While the benefits of social prescribing are vast and the process relatively simple, social prescribing is still a relatively unknown community approach to embedding life-long learning as a resource for living.
Our project has a strong and cross representational consortium involving 8 partners from 6 countries
