Our Director Patrick Vernon took part in a "Collaborative" New Years resolution exercise alongside some of the big names working in Lambeth. Here's what he said:

2017- Black Thrive was established in June at the same time I was appointed as Director. It has been great that the community and stakeholders welcomed and endorsed our vision and our emerging priorities for 2018 

2018 This is the 70th anniversary of the Windrush where Lambeth played a critical role in welcoming and making home many people from the Caribbean. Black Thrive along with many others will contribute to this landmark occasion locally and nationally.Black Thrive will build on its consolidation phase in developing its programme of activities, support the development of the Living Well Network and further social media and communications plans."

Other participants included Ronnie Wilson, CEO, First Step Trust (FST), Mike Rogers, Mental Health Engagement Lead, Healthwatch Lambeth and Sarah Corlett, Chair, Healthwatch Lambeth, just to name a few.
