For the health and well being of all our users and staff and In line with national and local policy we have decided we have to close the Community Centre for the time being. No services will be available from here until further notice.

However, we will continue to provide advice and support to people needing help with Council Tax relief, Housing Benefit, etc. We can help you register with Lewisham Council, upload documentary evidence and talk you through the process, as well as help you with referrals to health agencies.
Contact: Shirley Kirkland on info@lgl.org.uk; or phone 07706 931986. More sources of help and advice are listed below


Take care of your health and please follow the guidelines on hand washing and avoiding contact especially if you are over 70 and have underlying health conditions. We look forward to seeing you all again when things change.

With our best wishes
Lee Green Lives Trustees.
