What are Local Assemblies
Local Assemblies are community-based open forums aiming to actively involve, consult, empower and learn from residents and those working and studying in Lewisham Council’s local wards.
Each Assembly is your chance to:
- Find out what is happening in your ward
- Discuss and share what matters to you
- Work with your councillors and others to identify solutions and shape the future of your neighbourhood.
Meetings take place up to four times a year. They are a collaboration between the Council, the community, the voluntary sector, the police and others to make real change happen. With yearly priorities for discussion decided by the local community.
You can get involved by contacting your local councillor or the Council’s Community Development Team using details below. Attend one of the regular meetings or submit your contributions via email to get your voice heard.
