Hammersmith and Fulham residents are being asked to register their interest in attending a webinar where we will be looking at future potential service options for delivery of the new model of care for adult (18+) community-based specialist palliative care

The proposed new model of care has been co-designed over the last year by a working group of NW London residents, along with clinicians, NHS providers and charitable hospices with the ultimate goal of making sure there is improved access to high quality services. 

We are now ready to look at what that means in practice and during the webinar we will share the various potential service options that have been developed and ask for people’s feedback and answer questions. Attendees will also have the opportunity to put forward their own suggestions of potential options to be considered if they think we have missed or not thought of something. 

Details of the potential service options will be published before the webinars so that attendees have the chance to look at and consider them before the meeting commences. 

The Hammersmith and Fulham webinar will be held from 6 to 8pm on Monday 20 November 2023.

In collaboration with Hammersmith and Fulham Council and health care sector, Sobus is one of several organisations involved in co-producing the “Building Trust” initiative in Hammersmith and Fulham.

As a consequence of covid-19, from the dialogue with residents, it was noted that particular groups of residents in Hammersmith and Fulham shared concerns of their lived experiences of inequalities in health and care systems.

The Building Trust Project is seeking to create a shared understanding of the difficulties and realities of disempowered communities through initially hosting a number of Listening Events throughout the borough. The aim is to conduct a range of Listening Events with different communities from wide demographics. The initial Listening Events will be with residents from the African and African-Caribbean communities.

Sobus will be hosting the Listening Event on Tuesday 25th July 2023 between 1:30pm – 4pm.

How can digital technologies help to provide community dementia support and reduce loneliness?

The COVID-19 pandemic was particularly hard on people living with dementia as lockdown stripped away the routines and family and community support they rely on. Community dementia support groups had to adapt quickly to use digital technologies to re-engage and support people in their homes in creative ways tailored to the specific needs of people living with dementia and their carers.

To develop new hybrid approaches for supporting people living with dementia in the community and helping them live safely in their own homes, the London Office Technology and Innovation and the Helix Centre (part of the UK Dementia Research Institute Care Research & Technology Centre at Imperial College London) undertook a London-wide project to co-design and pilot new ways to provide community dementia support. Although this project focused on the needs of people living with dementia, it has the potential to inform and impact community support for other groups in a post-COVID society.

To enable other organisations to undertake similar initiatives, the Helix Centre has developed an easy-to-use toolkit capturing the learning and resources for each of the project phases. 

@PeopleAriseNow  will be hosting their Community Connect event., focusing on “How Safe do you feel?”.  

Date: Tuesday 29th  November 

Time: 11am – 1pm  

Location: Sobus, 20 Dawes Road, SW6 7EN.

Webinar Wednesday 26th October 2022. This event is focused on supporting black mental health for local business.  


Do you have lived experience of the criminal justice system? Do you have the potential to be a leader for change?

 We are delighted to announce that the Criminal Justice Alliance (CJA)’s lived experience leadership programme, ELEVATE CJS, has opened applications to attend the ELEVATE CJS Taster Day 2022. Attendance is not essential to apply to be part of the ELEVATE CJS 2023 cohort, however it is an invaluable opportunity for potential emerging leaders to learn more about the programme.


 The Criminal Justice Alliance is piloting ELEVATE CJS, a comprehensive twelve-month leadership programme that promotes the redistribution of power to people with lived experience of the criminal justice system.

 The programme aims to dismantle the barriers of stigma and tokenism, which prevent emerging leaders who are working in the sector from progressing to positions of power and influence.

 Through personal and professional development training, the programme will equip individuals with the skills, knowledge, and networks to advance systemic change, challenging the criminal justice sector to reimagine who can be a leader.

 ELEVATE CJS runs from January to December. The first cohort will begin the programme in January 2023.

 Read more about ELEVATE CJS, and sign up to be first to hear when applications open for the 2023 cohort, here.
