About us

Kaleidoscope, in the heart of Lewisham, is an award-winning purpose-built building that brings together specialist children’s community services under one roof, including health, disability, mental health, education and social care services.

This means that children can be seen by a range of professionals, including paediatricians, therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, health visitors, social workers and nurses – all in the same building. It is the first project of its kind on such a scale in the UK to provide integrated services for children and young people.

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust is responsible for Community Children and Young People’s Health Services at Kaleidoscope. Education and social care services are run by Lewisham Council. 

As well as seeing children at the Kaleidoscope building, our specialist staff also work in homes, early years and children’s centres, schools and local health centres.
