Public Health Lambeth, overseen by Lambeth Council, are the partners who will hold the data for Black Thrive and lead the work on the shared measurement system.

Their role is to gather data already existing, including health data from statutory services and the voluntary sector as well as data collected on education, housing and employment. The team will develop a baseline – a measure of what the data says about Lambeth now, before Black Thrive has launched. This will highlight to the Working Groups key areas of inequality and enable them to direct their efforts to areas where change is most required.

Over the 5 years, Public Health Lambeth will collect updated data from across organisations to share how progress has made on key indicators that are reflective of the outcomes being targeted by Black Thrive.
