Lewisham council is planning to decimate our community centres. This is the campaign to stop this from happening.

The centres

The centres

Under Lewisham council’s “Stronger, Safer Communities” plan, of the 24 community centres in the borough there are:

  • 7 facing closure

  • 5 To be redeveloped as smaller centres to make room for flats.

  • 2 To be turned into nurseries

  • 5 To be crammed with community or school groups with nowhere else to go

  • 4 facing higher charges or cuts, or possible redevelopment

That’s 23 out of 24 centres in trouble. This is a complete decimation of community centres in Lewisham. All the community centres affected are listed on the associated pages.
