Welcome to our latest update. We have plenty of exciting work underway and are pleased to share some of our favourite highlights.
Our goal to improve care for Londoners experiencing mental ill health has been firmly in the spotlight. In December, we launched London’s new section 136 pathway and Health Based Place of Safety specification at City Hall with our partners across health and care, including Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, and London’s police forces. We were excited by the energy on the day and encouraged by the support shown by the many agencies involved in crisis care. BBC London TV and radio embraced the topic and social media conversations reached over 3 million people.
We are increasingly seeing the benefits of partnering with organisations that reach across health and care and beyond. Among our latest connections are the London Fire Brigade and the Co-op. Together we hosted free Christmas lunches and health support for vulnerable adults. This was a chance to capitalise on local community resources and test potential for shared initiatives with like-minded and motivated groups.
