At Homes for Lambeth, our mission is to build thriving communities and better futures for our residents. That means offering wellbeing activities, providing training and promoting employability opportunities to our residents.
Homes for Lambeth has started a new partnership with Virtual College as we launch a series of online training courses which will be free to access for our residents and can be undertaken from home during our support for social distancing.

This initiative is part of our wider Resident Engagement and Social Investment (RESI for short) plan which was outlined in our recently published Business Plan. Based on conversations with stakeholders, desktop research and feedback from residents, we are putting together social investment plans for each estate. So far, this work has uncovered seven overarching issue-based themes which all interface with the council’s borough plan– see below:
We will consult with residents on these plans and how they should be implemented. In doing this, we will seek to build local partnerships around the estates, which we will rebuild, focusing on those who are within a five-minute walk. In addition, we will use information from the council’s Equalities Impact Assessment (EQIA) to help us understand the different needs of the estates and you as a resident. However, at this time social distancing, we are experimenting with using digital channels to address the overarching issue-based themes our research to date has thrown up.
