If you want to help those who are self-isolating or socially distancing, the advice is to start with the people you know including your families, your friends, your neighbours and people in your local neighbourhood. These are the people who you are most likely to be able to provide continued support to.
Lambeth Council is working closely with our local NHS partners and the community and voluntary sector to ensure that vulnerable people and community organisations are able to access support when they need it. If you would like to register to volunteer and support your local community, please complete our coronavirus volunteer form.
There are also a number of organisations and community networks that are active in the borough. You can also engage with them to find out about other opportunities to volunteer and support. These include:
- Age UK Lambeth
- Mutual aid Lambeth See the map of WhatsApp groups below.
- Next Door
- Lambeth Forum Network
- Communities Together
Be careful about how you share personal information about yourself and other people. Avoid sharing your or a vulnerable person's address and other contact information in public groups or documents.
