Lambeth has a strong community spirit and a large and diverse voluntary and community sector. Without fail it has risen to the challenge at times of need when the call goes out.
It will be of no surprise that when the biggest challenge of recent times, the Covid-19 epidemic struck – Lambeth’s residents were at the forefront of street-by-street assistance – from foodbanks to home deliveries, vaccine marshals and befriending services – this huge groundswell of support coalesced into Team Lambeth.
Team Lambeth is made up of thousands of neighbourhood volunteers who answered the call at a time of need, and who continue to provide invaluable support to those at need in the borough by donating time, skills and energy when called upon.
Team Lambeth works with the almost thousand strong local organisations that work in the community in Lambeth and provides a volunteer brokering platform to help Team Lambeth volunteers and providers find their perfect match.

Volunteering is a hugely valuable and rewarding experience – both for volunteers and the communities they support. It can help you to:
Gain Confidence: Engaging in altruistic activities gives a greater sense of purpose and involvement which in turn fosters an improved quality of life and improved self-esteem.
Learn new skills: Volunteering is an opportunity to learn new skills which may in turn improve pathways to employment.
Enhance Well-being: Volunteering promotes personal well-being and has proven mental health benefits.
Be a part of your community: Volunteering enables people to play an active role in their society and contribute to positive social change.
Meet people: Volunteering helps to break down social barriers and offers people an opportunity to socialise with people from different social band cultural backgrounds and build community.
