Support our citywide campaign celebrating London's amazing communities

We know life in London can be a challenge, particularly for certain individuals and communities. Whilst it is important for us to acknowledge and address the challenges Londoners face, we also know from our ongoing engagement that London is a place full of individuals coming together to look out for each other and build strength and resilience.
The How do we #ThriveLDN? campaign aims to:
  • Highlight and celebrate activities and initiatives being led by Londoners that are helping to build strength and resilience.
  • Generate more awareness about some of the challenges faced by particular communities which can lead to poor mental health, isolation and exclusion.
  • Invite our participants and partners to share solutions to overcome some of these challenges by asking How do we thrive London?

How to get involved

Share what you are doing to build strength and resilience

We have been busy collecting examples of activities and initiatives being led by Londoners that are helping to build strength and resilience. You can explore activities and initiatives in your borough above.
However, we know there is lots more going on that we are not aware of.
We want to hear your stories and experiences, you can do this by using the form on the right or use #ThriveLDN across social media channels.
The campaign will run for three-weeks, as an online roadshow moving between and celebrating all 32 London boroughs and the City of London.

Establish an Act of Kindness Benches in your area

Thrive LDN is supporting an Acts of Kindness Bench pilot scheme – or AOK Benches for short – across London to help combat loneliness and isolation.
The pilot scheme, launching to coincide with National Random Acts of Kindness Day, is open to all Londoners who want to create a safe place where people can meet and share a chat in their area.
You can find out about AOK Benches near you and how to set up your own.

Tell us your ideas around how Londoners can thrive

During the campaign we will be inviting our participants and partners to share their solutions to overcome some of the challenges in London which can lead to poor mental health, isolation and exclusion. The findings we be used to inform our new strategy being published later in the year.
If you would like to get involved subscribe to our newsletter and we will be in touch with more details during the campaign.
