Public Reference Group meeting hosted by Africa Advocacy Foundation
Thanks to Africa Advocacy Foundation for hosting our Public Reference Group (PRG) meeting on Friday 5 April. During the meeting, CCG commissioners updated and discussed the current developments with PRG members in order to better support frail residents in Lewisham following the Frailty Summit in 2018. Additionally, the group received an update on community and voluntary sector mental health services, which include:
o Integrated Advocacy Service (delivered by POWhER)
o Integrated Dementia Service, with Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich Mind (BGL Mind) working in partnership with Sydenham Garden and Carers Lewisham
o Integrated Prevention and Recovery Service, provided by BGL Mind in partnership with Sydenham Garden, Southside Partnership, Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network and Metro. This service acts as a single point of access for people that require interventions for common to serious mental illness, who are in the community. It provides short to medium term case management and other appropriate interventions to ensure that people with a mental health issue can establish and maintain their independence in the community.
