There is good evidence that referral to welfare rights advice can result in short-term financial and psychological gains. However, further research is needed to examine the longer-term impacts.
There is a need to look at social prescribing through an inequalities lens. It is plausible that approaches which target disadvantaged groups and provide accessible, intensive and tailored services are more likely to reduce inequalities than those that are information based and rely on people opting in to services.
