Mental health charities announce merger

Two neighbouring MIND charities in London have announced they are to merge.

The move will see Lambeth and Southwark, and nearby Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich MIND charities link up by January 2024.

The charities have issued an assurance that “all our current services will continue as usual and service users will continue to be supported after the merger has been completed”.

They add the move will help develop services. Combining the two teams “will add to our wealth of knowledge, skills and experience and will contribute to improving our services”, they said.

Lambeth and Southwark MIND chief executive Alastair Smith-Agbaje said: “We are confident that this move has huge potential to open even more doors to life saving mental health services in Lambeth and Southwark, in a time of real need.”

There are more than 100 local MINDS across England and Wales providing frontline mental health support.
