The new Alliance

From July 2018, Lambeth’s community ‘front door’, specialist and crisis services are changing with the aim of improving local people’s experience and outcomes. Most people with mental health needs receive treatment and support in the community.

The Living Well Network Alliance contract will run for 7-10 years and its important that the voices of people with lived experience are used to help shape these services.

Service plans:

  • ‘Front Door’ services open to everyone in Lambeth experiencing emotional distress or mental health needs, their family and supporters
    ‘Living well centres’, for everyone who needs more specialist help to recover, stay well and stay safe
    ‘Urgent care’, open to everyone who needs urgent mental health support within 4 hours.

Listening to people with lived experience

We have held two community workshops where people told us how the new services needed to work differently in order to meet their needs. A report from the workshops will be published soon.

To promote co production and influence how services work, we will be holding annual workshops and engaging with different groups of people over the lifetime of the contract.
