We have compiled a list of links to local services in your area -
Age UK Lambeth
Our services are for everyone over 55. We particularly welcome users from black and minority communities, people with disabilities, lesbians & gay men. We promote diversity and equality of opportunity in our services, strategic work and employment. We celebrated 60 years of working with and for older people in Lambeth in 2006.
MYcommunity Directory is a list of services in Lambeth to help make accessing information as straightforward as possible.
The online directory is part of the services provided by the Independent Living and Carers' Partnership (ILCP) and powered by Age UK Lambeth. The Directory is funded by Lambeth Council.
We provide information on everything from practical services, like advice on benefits and finding help at home to community services like social activities and help with health and wellbeing. As the Directory grows, it is anticipated to become the best first place to look for information, help, care and support in Lambeth.
The Directory also has a simple Eligibility Checker for Adult Social Care. This helps you work out if you may be entitled to help from Adult Social Care or not. It points you to our SAIL service in case you are not.
Please note that whilst each organisation is checked before they are made live on the directory, we do not vet them or the information they provide. If you have any concerns regarding the information on the directory, please contact us, and we'll do our best to sort it out!

The Vassall road Time Bank hub is based out of a Residential Care Home in the local area. Members share skills with the local residents, and members and residents earn time credits working on the Accessible Edible food growing project in the home.
Local people are welcome to join any of the Time Bank hubs and members are welcome to attend events and activities run by the other hubs.
If you are interested in joining a hub please contact Time4Lambeth Coordinator, Funmi or Suzanne on 020 8670 0990 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Healthwatch Lambeth is part of a national network of local Healthwatch organisations working to ensure your voice counts when it comes to shaping and improving local health and care services, now and in the future.
Our aim is to address inequalities in health and social care and ensure local services are appropriate for our diverse communities.
Lambeth GP Federations
In the new NHS landscape, there is a move towards developing new clinical pathways which are close to primary care. Where these pathways are too complex for individual practices alone to manage, Federations offer an alternative to corporations and Foundation Hospital Trusts moving in. In addition, by working together we envisage that we can share “back office” functions and become more efficient in our workforce recruitment, plus learning and development. We aim to become a “Multispecialty Community Provider”.
