Our values

Our values set a benchmark for our behaviour across the organisation:
  • We put service to the public first.

We exist to serve and support the residents of Lewisham, and everything we do must always have residents’ interests first and foremost.

  • We respect all people and all communities.

We have a proud history of actively working to tackle inequalities, both across the borough and within the Council, and we will continue to build on this in everything we do.

  • We invest in employees.

We want to be considered a top employer in local government. We will always ensure we provide opportunities for staff at all levels to learn new skills and progress their career.

  • We are open, honest and fair in all we do.

We will be transparent in the decisions that we take, both with each other and with the residents of Lewisham. Robust governance procedures will ensure that our decisions are honest and fair.
