Lambeth Face: Free debt and benefits service

To aid Lambeth residents with financial support, Metropolitan housing & Lambeth council have partnered up and launched a FREE debt and benefits service called (Lambeth FACE)

In the coming months Lambeth FACE will be targeting and working with TRAs in Lambeth to deliver a number of services to support people living in their communities.

We are very keen to work closely with Lambeth TRAs to provide financial support (debt & benefit advice, budgeting and money skills) to residents living in your community. All residents will be able to access these services free of charge  as we are funded by the Big Lottery. If you have the required facilities and would like us to deliver any of our services to your TRA and other residents please let me know. Below is a list of all the services we plan to deliver in Clapham and the surrounding area in November 2016:
