Black Thrive – a partnership for Black wellbeing

Healthwatch Lambeth is hosting the staff team of Black Thrive, an independent partnership of Lambeth community and services.

People of African and Caribbean descent suffer disproportionately when it comes to mental health and wellbeing. Black Thrive has been established as a partnership between statutory and community partners to continue to the work started by the Black Health and Wellbeing Commission (BHWC) to improve mental health and wellbeing for Lambeth’s black communities.

Black Thrive seeks to build a culture in Lambeth whereby black communities are able to thrive and improve their mental health and wellbeing, supported by relevant, accessible services, which provide the same excellent quality of support for all people regardless of their race. There is an urgent need to address these unequal outcomes.
