Freephone Lewisham Advice Line is open during Coronavirus restrictions

The Lewisham Advice Line remains open during our normal hours. Call 0800 231 5453
Monday to Friday, 9.30am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 4pm

The staff and volunteers at Advice Lewisham are committed to continuing to support our clients safely throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Our freephone Lewisham Advice Line is fully up and running, and we are continuing to provide support over the phone. We are helping people to find the information they need to manage their enquiries, and we can arrange a limited number of longer telephone appointments with our advisors. We will prioritise these telephone appointments based on our ‘vulnerability’ critiera.

However, because of the restrictions currently in place, all our offices are closed, and we are not providing any face-to-face services. This is in order to protect our clients, our staff and volunteers from the risk of infection – and to play our part in fighting coronavirus.

We know these are challenging times for everyone. Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers have been working hard to maintain a service despite all the uncertainties caused by the pandemic. We are very grateful for the patience and consideration that our clients, staff and volunteers have shown as we have adapted our services to the current circumstances.

We will update our website with any further changes.

Stay safe – stay home.

(1/2) Great visit to @StoreEvelyn this morning to meet @LewishamMayores & talk about their ideas for ending child food poverty, incl. packed lunches for kids on FSM. If you'd like to donate to this fantastic cause, you do so here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/evelyncommunitystore?utm_term=Ky6WnwvJP

We have a YouTube channel with a small, but growing list of videos about learning disability. Check it out here:

Really useful training session today on Hate Crime (focussing on learning disability) courtesy of Gabriella and team @LewSpeakUp. Thought provoking, as well as useful in practical terms. We are very grateful! 👍

At least 670,000 extra people will become destitute in the last three months of the year – a level of poverty that leaves them unable to meet basic food, shelter or clothing needs – if the government withdraws Covid support for low-income households.
