We take a programmatic approach, based on evidence and focussed on outcomes
To make the most of our place focus, we are focusing on a small number of health issues which are particularly significant in Lambeth and Southwark, and working to tackle them through long-term programmes of work.
Being place-based allows us to layer and coordinate projects to create an impact bigger than the sum of their parts
To support the success of our programmes, we take time to learn about what’s going on around health issues in our local communities, and how urban living, deprivation and diversity play a role. This shapes what kinds of projects we incorporate into a programme – we focus on the health outcomes that we are trying to achieve, and remain open minded on what activity will help us to get there. Talking to representatives from across our communities, health and care systems and others, is helping us to understand the local picture.
We want to provide high potential projects with what they need in order to create, sustain and grow their impact - for example, we might help projects to access specialist business support, connect with local commissioners, or build up evidence
Tools to support great ideas lead to great improvements.
