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.
In our latest research, we’ve taken a detailed look with King’s College London at local data and talked to people living in our boroughs to understand how people living in urban environments progress from one to many multiple long-term conditions.

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. Currently we’re aiming to reduce childhood obesity and improve health for people with multiple long-term conditions.
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.
