We have been working closely with partners in central government, the NHS, the Local Government Association, the Metropolitan Police, Greater London Authority and other public bodies to minimise any potential detrimental effect of Brexit on residents and businesses in Lambeth, particularly in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.
The following links offer further information about our contingency planning and how any risks can be mitigated.

Are you an EU citizen living in the UK?
Here in Lambeth we have a long and proud history of welcoming people from all over the world to live and work in our borough. We have a culture of openness and tolerance, and we value our residents who have come to live here from the EU.
We want you to stay here after Brexit.
If you’re an EU citizen, you and your family can now apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living, working and studying in the UK after any Brexit transition period.
There is no fee for the EU Settlement Scheme, which will allow you and your family to continue to be eligible for:
- public services, such as healthcare and schools
- public funds and pensions
- British citizenship, if you meet the requirements and want to apply
For more information and how to apply visit gov.uk/eusettledstatus You may be able to stay in the UK without applying – for example, if you’re an Irish citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.
