Speaking Out

Back in 2012, local adults and young people joined forces with the Council to develop a new way of working to give communities more of a say on play and youth services in the borough. It was agreed that local people wanted more power and more involvment in deciding how money was spent and the way services could be run. It was from this principle that the Young Lambeth Co-op (YLC) was born.

Cooperatives include non-profit community organizations and businesses that are owned and managed by the people who use its services or by the people who work there.

A town council is a democratically elected form of government for small municipalities or civil parishes. A council may serve as both the representative and executive branch.

The current district of Lambeth was part of the large ancient parish of Lambeth St Mary in the Brixton hundred of Surrey.
