In principle, the LEP has approved West London Alliance to work with with local partners (including the Greater London Authority and London Boroughs) and Jobcentre Plus, Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies leads, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Health and Wellbeing Boards, and other experts to design fully developed interventions and a business case for a mental health and employment integration trailblazer in West London by autumn 2014 in West London. Development is currently underway.

The London Enterprise Panel Skills and Working Group will be examining the full business case shortly.
