Campaigns and Communications
The Campaigns and Communications team includes the Media, Marketing and Publishing teams.
The communications team works to provide useful service information to local people as well as promote the opportunities and benefits of the borough.
In order to give residents regular information we produce a monthly publication called Lambeth Talk.
The census figures revealed the level of diversity across the borough. Every year in Lambeth we have a lot of people moving out and many moving in. In order to manage this high level of change and diversity we need to give regular and clear information. This helps people to know about what is available and how to access it.
There are many changes taking place that impact on local people including on welfare and housing. It is important that we help local people know how these changes impact on them. From April 2013 we are responsible for promoting health issues such as tackling obesity. This major responsibility involves people receiving good advice and encouragement in order to tackle health issues. A regular publication allows us to do this.
With the more regular publication we will increase advertising revenue. The publication helps the authority to save money by encouraging people to pay online, increase recycling, access training for work, prevent crime and tackle health issues. The council is determined to give more control to local people over the services they use and want. A regular publication allows us to promote opportunities to do this.
The DCLG guidance on publicity is not in favour of local councils competing with local newspapers. That is why we do not have a regular newspaper format but produce a monthly magazine.

We have recently produced 12 core service leaflets giving residents information on a range of services including planning and regeneration, fostering and adoption and education and learning. These leaflets are distributed in council buildings across the borough, cost us £7,317 to produce.
Every year we also produce the A-Z guide to council services. This is a handy guide to every single service in the borough. You can pick up one at the main council buildings including libraries and customer centres. In 2010-11 this cost £6,241 for designing and printing 10,000 copies.
You might also notice that we have a regular advertorial detailing council services in the Lambeth Weekender, which is published fortnightly. This advertorial is free to the council as it is part of a statutory notices contract we have in place with this publication. All councils are legally obliged to print statutory notices adverts in a local paper about road closures and building works etc. Our contract with the Weekender ensures we get the best possible price for these adverts as well as a free advertorial to us keep you up to date on council services.
The press office deal with several media queries every day from local, trade, specialist and broadcast media on behalf of all Lambeth services.
