Community support

See how we can support you to be active in your communities.​

The Lewisham Deal

Together with a number of public sector partners, we have made a commitment to tackle poverty and support growth in the borough.

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 support vulnerable refugee families to Lewisham. So far 30 families have resettled in Lewisham and we are preparing to welcome our next arrivals as part of our hundred families programme.

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.
