Community support

See how we can support you to be active in your communities.​
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
We are working with a range of partner organisations including central government, voluntary groups and the local community to welcome and house refugee families directly arriving from the Middle East. So far eight refugee families have resettled in Lewisham and we are preparing to welcome our next arrivals.
Right to nominate assets of community value
An eligible local voluntary or community group can ask us to list certain assets as being of value to the community.
Community premises
We manage and support many community premises throughout the borough. These are used by voluntary organisations, charities and residents.
