Making a difference - our aims and priorities
This section aims to demonstrate our commitment to our ethos of making a difference. We are dedicated to making a real difference to anyone who contacts us, uses our services, or works with us whether they are a local resident, business, partner, or supplier.
Our vision is that Lambeth should be a caring, aspirational and safe and secure borough. Every decision we make should be a step towards achieving those objectives. Read more about our priorities and outcomes in the Corporate Plan.

Safer Lambeth Partnership was established following the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The partnership includes the council, Metropolitan Police, probation service, primary care trust, HM Prison Service, fire service, Community Police Consultative Group, Crown Prosecution Service and a range of voluntary and community organisations.
The Sustainable Community Strategy is the borough's 12 year long term strategy, which sets out how we will improve the quality of life for people who live, work and visit Lambeth. The strategy is delivered by Lambeth First (the borough's local strategic partnership) and the council is a key member of this partnership.
