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.

The Lewisham Deal will bring significant benefits for the local community, with more high-quality apprenticeships, a focus on promoting the Living Wage and additional investment in the local economy.

The organisations involved in the Deal are the Council, Lewisham Homes, Phoenix Community Housing, Goldsmiths, University of London, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and Lewisham College. Together these organisations employ thousands of people and spend hundreds of millions of pounds through procurement.

Based on the community wealth building approach, the Lewisham Deal will boost investment in local small and medium sized enterprises and help provide high-quality training and employment opportunities for local residents. The commitments in the Lewisham Deal cover procurement, apprenticeships, information and guidance, and the London Living Wage.
