The Lewisham Local Card creates a network of community supporters and facilitates collaboration

The Lewisham Local scheme started as a way to reward volunteers in the Borough for the great work they do for the community. It created a link between individual community supporters with a general interest in local projects. We now introduce a paid-for card which is not exclusive to volunteers but nonetheless sticks to the spirit of community development, where all profits go to local charities and good causes. We wanted to provide everyone with a chance to support the community, even if they are unable to give their time and skills, a charitable donation can be just as effective!

Decide what local good causes receive funding

Decide what local good causes receive funding

Aside from the prerequisite community support that cardholders provide, the scheme allows you to become continuously involved in local good causes. All our cardholders are invited to vote on which projects or themes receive funding, thus creating real, tangible change in our community. This way, causes that receive funding are representative of the wider community’s values and aspirations. As soon as we raise £5.000 for the Community Fund, the charitable donations will start being redirected towards the project of your choice. Until then, we simply ask you to spread the word and attract likeminded individuals so we can soon see the benefits of the scheme!
