All over Lambeth people go out of their way to help others, give advice, get involved in their community and make this borough an even better place to live.
We have a range of schemes available to help people who want to Do The Right Thing. Take a look below or visit our Do The Right Thing page to see how much is happening in Lambeth.
Street Champions are everywhere. They’re the people who check on elderly neighbours when the weather’s cold; who take parcels in when the recipients are out; who care about their street and want it to be a clean, safe and neighbourly place. If you are one of these people, the council can help you to make your community spirit go even further.
Take a look at the Street Champions page to find out more and see our map of over 400 Street Champions!
Community Freshviews are a great opportunity for individual streets or community groups to get together to improve their local area.
Freshviews are chosen and led by the community. We have provided equipment, expertise and some extra helping hands for hundreds of Freshviews over the past eight years.
Visit our Community Freshview page for more information.
We are also warning people that antisocial behaviour on the borough’s streets will be met with on-the-spot fines of up to £80.

In 2014, Lambeth was awarded Food Flagship Borough status following a competitive bidding process.
The vision is to help Lambeth residents to develop a love of healthy and sustainable food. We want everyone to have the knowledge, passion and skills to grow, buy, cook and enjoy food with their family, friends and community. We will build on our famous markets, schools, community gardens and small food businesses to make Lambeth the go-to destination in London for diverse, healthy and exciting food.
