Executive summary

Well London is a programme of community engagement and development aimed at increasing levels of mental well-being, healthy eating and physical activity in deprived neighbourhoods in London.

In 2013, under cover of MD1206, the Mayor approved receipt of a further award from the Big Lottery Fund of £1.8m to continue the phase 2 Well London programme to 2015. Delays in Waltham Forest, caused by local procurement and legal issues, meant that Well London could not be delivered within the required timeframe, and London Borough of Waltham Forest has agreed that the programme should not go ahead and the funding should be reallocated.

Director’s approval is required for the formal termination of the Waltham Forest programme, the reallocation of funding amounting to £84,075, and corresponding variation of the 2013-15 grant funding agreements.
