One Lambeth Advice
The 4 general advice agencies (Lambeth Law Centre, Brixton Advice Service, Merton and Citizens Advice Merton and Lambeth and Centre 70) which form the Lambeth Advice Network work closely together and with Lambeth Council There is now a single initial point of contact for people to get advice and, if they need, to then access the services provided by these agencies. Trained volunteers (Advice Guides) are also available in a number of key venues and at some GP practices to give people support to use resources to help themselves or to help them access other parts of the One Lambeth Advice service and more of these Advice Guides are being recruited.
Merton and Lambeth Citizens Advice is providing this ‘portal’ on behalf of the Network and the new One Lambeth Advice website can now be visited. This also includes the wide range of factsheets and other material provided by national Citizens Advice.
