Southwark Culture Health and Wellbeing Partnership
Southwark Culture Health and Wellbeing Partnership (SCHWeP) is a cross-sector network of over 150 members with a core group of around 50 individuals.
It is one of the first borough-wide strategic approaches to culture, health and wellbeing taken by a local authority. The network meets quarterly and although closely cooperating with the council, it works independently. Anyone can join, including artists, organisations, healthcare providers and researchers.
Southwark is a diverse community and experiences many of the health and social inequalities and challenges of an inner-city borough. SCHWeP has come together to tackle these inequalities through moving away from an exclusively medical model of care towards a more community-based, person-centred approach, which brings together the expertise and experience from all parts of the cultural community and health and care system.
