We’re delighted to announce that following an independent external review commissioned by the Centre for Mental Health, Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich Mind’s Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Employment Service, which is delivered in partnership with Oxleas, has been selected as a Centre of Excellence.

There are only 20 IPS Centres of Excellence in the country, and this is the first local Mind service to be selected. According to the Centre for Mental Health, "IPS Centres of Excellence are exemplary in their use of the IPS model and the job outcomes they achieve for people with severe and enduring mental illness."

The service, which operates in Bromley and Greenwich, was set up only 18 months ago, making this an even more impressive achievement.

Iain Dimond, Chief Operating Officer at Oxleas, said: "This is fantastic news and a great achievement for all concerned. We look forward in continuing to work alongside Mind in the delivery of this service."
