Our communities approach

How we work with communities to deliver integrated health and care in Lambeth

To ensure we can improve health in Lambeth as a partnership we commit to working with our local communities. We will:

  • Communicate and engage with our patients and residents using a range of methods, ensuring information is accessible and easy to understand; and listen to patients, residents and community voices, ensuring those voices actively influence improvement
  • Work collaboratively to reduce health inequalities and support healthy neighbourhoods, recognising and supporting our assets in the community including residents, carers, grassroots organisations, volunteers, voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations and community groups
  • Have ‘anchor institutions’ that serve the wellbeing of our population by strategically and intentionally managing their resources to help address local social, economic, and environmental priorities to reduce health inequalities

Thriving communities

Working alongside residents, grassroots organisations and the voluntary and community sector is key to supporting Lambeth people to maintain and improve their health and sense of wellbeing.

Lambeth Together supports community activity throughout the borough, with a focus on health and wellbeing. This happens in lots of different ways – from community outreach and organising health days, to providing information or matching volunteers with local activity and groups.
