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.
