Summary of report content

In summer 2020, the South London Mental Ill-Health Prevention and Recovery Programme was formed in response to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on mental health and wellbeing. The programme is supported by south west and south east London Integrated Care Systems (ICS), all south London NHS mental health trusts, local authority partners (councillors and leaders), Healthwatch organisations, Citizens UK, and voluntary and community sector organisations.

This group launched the South London Listens (SLL) campaign in November 2020. On the 16 June 2021, the SLL community invited all partners to a summit. South London and the Maudsley Trust, on behalf of the South London Mental Ill-Health Prevention and Recovery Programme has contracted Healthwatch organisations across south London to carry out an audit of community and voluntary sector (CVS) activity in their area relating to the series of mental health prevention pledges made at the Community-led summit on 16 June 2021.

Healthwatch Kingston completed a desk-based audit for its borough and submitted the template of findings to further inform the SLL Action Plan. As part of this work, it undertook a series of interviews in September and October with stakeholders and engaged members of the Mental Health and Wellbeing subgroup of the Kingston Communities Taskforce, and members of the Kingston All Age Learning Disability Partnership Board. This report provides high-level feedback from these engagements
