Our We Can Talk family includes over 300 members of hospital staff across seven hospital sites.



Barts Health NHS Trust are the largest NHS trust in the UK and support the health and well-being of more than half a million children and young people. We Can Talk was created in partnership with Barts Health and they are our earliest adopters and biggest supporters. Our project team continues to work with Barts to deliver training across three hospital sites (Royal Free Hospital, Newham University Hospital and Whipps Cross University Hospital) and pursue funding opportunities to continue to embed We Can Talk across the trust.


Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust are one of the largest NHS trusts in England and the largest single-site teaching hospital in London. We Can Talk has been funded by Health Education England to expand the pilot project to two sites (Royal Free Hospital and Barnett Hospital). We are carrying out an engagement piece of work with staff and young people to ensure the training reflects local needs and then delivering the training across both sites.


Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust are working with the We Can Talk team to embed the We Can Talk principles and training across their organisation. We Can Talk will be working with staff at University Hospital Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, alongside local children and young people, to ensure the training reflects local needs and to engage the trust in thinking about their role in supporting children and young people’s mental health.

east-london-nhs-foundation-trustEast London NHS Foundation Trust support the mental health needs of over 750,000 people in East London. As the local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) provider linked to three major East London hospitals they have joined We Can Talk family to ensure a local CAMHS professional supports the project in partnership with each hospital site.
