Information on all aspects of living and working within Lewisham can be found on Lewisham Council's website.

The website offers help, advice and the ability to pay for services online as well as information on what's on in your area.

The process of applying for local authority housing has moved exclusively online. They will no longer accept paper applications.

You do not need a doctor's letter. You need to complete a self-assessment form which is only available online or directly from the council. A letter from your doctor will not help the process.

If the council are unable to process your application and need further medical information, they will request your written consent and write directly to your doctor in confidence to provide the required medical information.

The following link will take you to an A-Z of services.
