Exploring different peer and community connector roles in London

Across London there are a range of non-clinical ‘community connection’ roles that are supporting people with Serious Mental Illness (SMI) or complex mental health (MH) needs to transform the way that we deliver community MH services. For more information see the Community Mental Health Framework for Adults and Older Adults.

As the community MH transformation work develops there is a wealth of expertise, experience and good practice examples that can be shared across London to strengthen this work going forward.

Healthy London Partnership has interviewed people currently working in these roles and clinical leads to explore:

  • The different roles and responsibilities across London and how each benefit and contribute to supporting a person with SMI and the wider community MH transformation.
  • How these roles add value to a multidisciplinary community MH team- identifying what works well and areas of development to effectively integrate these roles.
  • The supporting infrastructure, leadership and personal & professional development that is required to ensure that these roles are effective, add value and are sustainable.
