Independent Advisory Groups (IAG's) were set up in response to mental health disparities to support SLaM make changes to it's services with the intention to improve experience, access and outcomes for service users from the BAME community. IAG's are a SLaM Trust wide initiative working in partnerships with London boroughs Croydon, Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham.
The Lewisham IAG is a voluntary committee, made up of community leaders passionate about mental health issues in Lewisham and the wider African and Caribbean community. Their partnership with SLaM aims to achieve anti-racism and equity within mental health services, and build trust within the Black community.
