Testing and scaling projects with partners to address complex health issues in urban areas
We have been working from our place in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark for over 500 years. We focus on the health issues that are prevalent locally but that are relevant to other urban areas. To do this, we work with partners from across the voluntary, public and commercial sectors to test and scale projects. We call this a whole-systems approach. It helps us to tackle complex health challenges from different angles to achieve long-lasting impact.
