Lambeth Integrated Personalised Support Alliance

The Lambeth Integrated Personalised Support Alliance (IPSA) offers people who currently go into long-term, expensive hospital rehabilitation wards or registered care homes the chance to live more independently, offering community rehabilitation where possible as an alternative to hospital.

The IPSA launched in April 2015 and offers personalised care and support to improve people's lives, including early intervention before they get into repeated crisis and require hospital treatment. 

The Alliance is made up of five partners - the charities Thames Reach and Certitude, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Lambeth Council. It's part of a collaborative approach in the borough which brings together voluntary sector providers, health professionals, commissioners and people using the services to devise a new way of offering services. 

At the heart of this new approach is a desire to see people with mental health issues as equal partners in their recovery, rather than defining them by their mental ill-health and by their use of services.

The IPSA is looking to obtain accommodation from a number of sources. These include social housing providers, by purchase on the open market and by negotiating with existing supported housing providers to extend their schemes.
