The South London Partnership is a sub-regional collaboration of five London boroughs: Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Merton, Richmond upon Thames and Sutton.

Long-standing joint working between the boroughs was strengthened in 2015 with a refreshed political commitment, focused on the triple goals of:

  • shaping sustainable growth
  • securing devolution to unlock opportunities
  • driving efficiency

In May 2015, the boroughs also formed a statutory Joint Committee through which to do business together where more formal arrangements are needed.

The SLP's priorities for 2016/17 include:

  1. establishing a compelling growth proposition and securing deals with a new London Mayor and government, as well as strong partnerships with local and neighbouring partners,to help us unlock sustainable growth 
  2. helping to improve residents skills through joint working with our further education colleges, using the Area Based Review and the opportunities for skills devolution in London
  3. developing the devolution of employment support in London, working with other sub-regions, London Councils and the GLA
  4. establishing a new sub-regional collaboration with the NHS to improve health and care outcomes and address the financial sustainability and quality of services

In April 2016, SLP published Distinctly South London - A Prospectus for Growth.  Read it here.

In December 2016, SLP Leaders agreed a sub-regional Growth Proposition - read it here.  We are now talking to a wide range of partners across our area and more widely, and shaping a programme of work to support our aspirations for economic growth in South London.
