Over the last three years in Lambeth, there has been increased use of specialist/tertiary placements. This Navigator post has been developed to support community placement pathways and improve the outcomes for people placed in specialist inpatient settings.

 This newly developed post will sit within the Lambeth IPSA (Integrated Personalised Support Alliance) - a unique partnership between SLAM, Lambeth CCG, Lambeth Social Care, and two voluntary sector organisations, Certitude and Thamesreach. Lambeth IPSA delivers innovative support services and opportunities for more independent living, with a strong focus on personalisation to achieve 3 big outcomes

  • To recover and stay well
  • To make own choices
