The Lambeth GP Food Co-op is an inclusive and open project for people registered with any one of the 45 GP practices in Lambeth.
If you would like to get involved in the gardening activity, make contact with your GP or the Practice Manager at the GP practice you’re registered with.
You may also turn up at any of the gardening sessions – details are available by clicking on the relevant practice in the Our GP garden communities section of this website.

You can attend a weekly 2-hour session, normally in the middle of the day, that is supervised, often by a health professional such as a practice nurse, who will be experienced gardeners themselves.

Every day thousands of acts of neighbourliness take place on our Lambeth streets, on our estates/blocks and in our buildings. Living in an area with good neighbours makes us feel safer, provides a local support system and increase our wellbeing.
From saying hello when you bump into each other on the street, to being respectful of the noise levels in your home so they don’t disturb your neighbours, it’s the little things that count. Being neighbourly makes a positive contribution to how we feel about where we live and for this reason the ‘Love Your Neighbour’ campaign aims to celebrate neighbourliness that takes place in all parts of the borough and to encourage more neighbourly acts to happen.
Lambeth Age UK supports older people in Lambeth.
