Lewisham Disabled People's Commission Report

If not now, then when? This report was published at the Lewisham Council AGM on 29 March 2023.

Making Lewisham an autism inclusive borough

In September 2023, we published our first Lewisham All-Age Autism Strategy. The strategy represents the first step of many in Lewisham’s journey to becoming an autism-inclusive borough.

The Lewisham Deal

The Lewisham Strategic Partnership was launched in 2022 and superseded what was previously the Lewisham Deal.

Community-led projects

Alongside the borough's major regeneration schemes, many community groups are devising and leading their own projects to improve the areas in which they live, with input from us and other organisations as required.

Supporting refugees

Our borough has a proud history of supporting refugees and migrants. We are strengthened by our diversity and the values we hold which enable and empower it.
