Local assemblies are open meetings where you and others decide how to improve your area.
The assembly is your chance to:
The borough of Lewisham has 18 wards. Each ward has a local assembly that meet up to four times a year. A ward councillor chairs the assembly meeting. Anyone who lives, works or learns in the ward can attend.
Each assembly has a set of priorities focusing on improving the ward. These are reviewed regularly. Every assembly gets a small amount of money every year known as the Local Assembly Fund. This is to help tackle these priorities.
The assembly works with the voluntary sector, the police, the wider community and others to make real change happen.
You can get involved by coming along to your next local assembly meeting. You can find details of all meetings on the individual ward pages. For more information about the programme please contact us.
