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.
Lambeth Street Champions
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.
Please see our Community Freshview site for more information.

Not On Our Streets
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.
You can keep up-to-date about how we are tackling anti-social behaviour, as well as some of the fines issued and court prosecutions by following our #noASB hashtag on Twitter.
Please see the Not On Our Streets campaign page for more.
Love Your Neighbour poster
Being a good neighbour means different things to different people. For some, being a good neighbour is as simple as a wave and saying ‘hi’ when you see each other, making sure your rubbish/recycling is put out on the right day, or helping out an elderly neighbour – it’s the little things that count towards making a big impression on how neighbourly your street, estate or building is.
