Saturday Bookstall in aid of Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers at the Copleston Centre on 11 November from 10.30 to 12.30

As always there will be a great selection of books, cds and DVDs, as well as delicious homemade cakes, Fairtrade coffee and good company.

The money raised can help people who have lost their home and country, and often friends and family as well.

The supporters are very generous and it is good to be involved in something positive which helps others, so why not pop along?

You might find that elisive, ideal early stock filler as Christmas gets closer and closer.

Doors open at 10.30 am & the event continues until 12.30 pm.

Draft Southwark Mental Health Strategy out for consultation

Draft Southwark Mental Health Strategy out for consultation

Since October 2016, NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Southwark Council have been working with NHS organisations, the voluntary and community sector, users of services, carers, and local residents to develop Southwark’s mental health and wellbeing strategy.

The CCG and Council have been talking about what is important, what services need to be in place, whether there are any gaps, and what works well and what needs improving.

They want to improve mental health and wellbeing by getting the most from every pound spent on health and care in Southwark. The strategy is the start of a process to consider how best to spend the available money in this area.

The CCG and Council are keen to learn what you think about the steps that are being proposed to improve mental health care in Southwark.

In summary the vision is to:

/ Support everyone in Southwark to live healthy, happy and longer lives;
/ Stop people from becoming unwell where possible;
/ Support more people in the community and at home;
/ Work together to share the money that is available across health and care in Southwark; and
/ Give people the skills they need to stay well and support one another.


In order to achieve this, the CCG and Council think that the focus should be on:

01 Prevention of poor health and promotion of wellbeing
02 Community based care and activating communities
03 Improving clinical and care services
04 Improving recovery
05 Improving quality and outcomes
Clink here to access the full consultation and the summary of the draft strategy and to give your views through the online survey. The consultation closes on 10 September 2017.
