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.
We're kicking off our work in 2019 with national partnerships that will help us test new solutions for tackling child obesity in Lambeth and Southwark – from TV campaigns promoting fruit and veg to changes in local stores to help families choose healthier food options.
With our support, Julie runs one of the most ambitious programmes of benefits for healthcare staff in the NHS.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. Currently we’re aiming to reduce childhood obesity and slow down people's progression to 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.
