We’re an independent, place-based foundation. We work with Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and others to improve the health of people in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.
Later this year, we'll be launching our next urban health programme on the health effects of air pollution. We're commissioning rapid research projects to help us understand the issue better and make informed choices about how we start to focus our efforts; from understanding people's lived experience of air pollution to identifying innovative solutions to poor air quality in our boroughs.
We're backing an innovative approach that focuses on households to support people with multiple health conditions.Find out more

Place. We work in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, supporting new approaches to health and sharing insights and learning with anyone facing similar challenges.
Focus. Our programmatic approach focuses on a few complex health issues at a time. This allows us to get under the skin of these challenges and explore what works in improving urban health.
Connecting. We bring great minds together, within and outside the NHS, to come at problems from different angles. And we collaborate, partnering with anyone – here and in other cities - to find, develop and deliver the best possible approaches to better health
Vision. Great ideas sometimes need the space and resource to fly and to reach their potential – so we take a long-term view with a very open mind
Impact. We’re led by evidence and focussed on outcomes – always testing, evaluating, learning and adapting for greater results. By combining our resources with others, we create the kind of firepower that achieves meaningful change now and for future generations.
