If you are an unpaid carer who lives in Southwark or looks after someone residing in Southwark, we would like to invite you to our engagement event. Join other carers and representatives from support organisations for networking over hot lunch, after which we will present our findings and recommendations to you.
You will then have an opportunity to comment on these and discuss what matters most to you when receiving support in your carer role.

We are inviting everyone with lived or professional interest to join us for two initial sessions. Contribute your ideas and opinions to an exciting research project which aims to rewrite the understanding of the intersection between mental health, justice and creativity. Stay for as little or long as you want in these freeform, generative sessions. We will use Talkaoke, the pop-up talk show and our instant visualisation system to foster ideas and inspire solutions. Commissioned by the Bethlem Gallery, The People Speak art group will facilitate a new artwork which responds to the mental health and justice research project.
