Black Thrive is a partnership that works to address the inequalities that negatively impact the mental health and wellbeing of Black people in Lambeth. We place the voices of the community at the center to influence policy, service design and delivery and to provide feedback about the community’s experience of services.
The Centre is working with City of London Sinfonia on a number of projects, most notably Sound Young Minds, an evaluation of music workshops taking place in the Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital Schools. City of London Sinfonia is home to over 40 outstanding professional musicians who come together in the shared belief that music has the power to transform the lives of people across all areas of society.
The Soothsayers and the Centre are collaborating to find ways in which music can be used to explore mental illness and support those with mental ill health, through a series of workshops and knowledge exchange activities.
Thrive LDN is a citywide movement to improve the mental health and wellbeing across London.
As a participation-driven partnership we support a community of organisations, groups and individuals from across the health and care system and the voluntary and community sector to advance social change and equity by engaging with and responding to the needs of all Londoners.
This partnership is an exciting opportunity for Thrive LDN to contribute to research and the evidence base, explore factors that shape and promote health and wellbeing and share learnings to help London become a city where everyone has an equal chance to a healthy, happy and fulfilling life.
Health Inequlaities Research Network (HERON) is partnering with Youth Access to support evaluation of project activities, including a 5 year project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund which brings young people, voluntary and community sector (VCS) providers and those working in the statutory mental health system together to co-design more effective ways to ensure young people can access the early mental health support they need.
