Problem Solving Booths

Thrive LDN is getting Londoners talking

What are Problem Solving Booths

Problem Solving Booths have been developed to enable wellbeing conversations.

The ‘booths’ consist of two chairs; one for the ‘helped’ who may have a problem or need advice, and one for the ‘helper’ who assists them. People then have the option to swap roles.

Problem Solving Booths are set up in public places to give anyone the opportunity to have a conversation.

Where did the idea come from?

Problem Solving Booths were developed from an idea suggested by a young person who was asked, “What would help the stresses in your head?”. He replied, “A problem solving booth right here.”

The social enterprise Owls has led the development of this idea with a range of partners across London.

Community workshops across London boroughs

Thrive LDN is helping communities to develop their own solutions

Starting community conversations

Thrive LDN is working with the Mental Health Foundation to host Community Workshops at borough level.

The aim of Community Workshops is to encourage people to work together to improve health and happiness in their area.

Who are Community Workshops for?

Our community conversations will bring together: local people, NHS providers and commissioners, councillors, social landlords, businesses, voluntary and community sector organisations, faith groups and Healthwatch to discuss how they might work together to support Thrive LDN’s aspirations.

Find out more

We are running Community Workshops across London to get these important conversations started.

We will put together a toolkit to help other boroughs to hold their own conversations and come up with their own solutions.

Check out our activities page for details of upcoming workshops.
