CASE STUDIES

Living Well UK is helping to build “Living Well systems of support" that put people's strengths and lived experience at the centre and are designed to help people recover and stay well as part of their community. This work is inspired by Lambeth Living Well - a model developed in Lambeth, South London.

Living Well systems of support are distinguishable by a set of key features. They prioritise working systemically in the following ways:
