TPAS Update

Hi folks,

I am here to offer advice on any issues concerning your home or where you live – and it doesn’t have to be about the regeneration!

A weekly advice drop-in takes place every Tuesday from 3.30pm until 7pm at the community hub at no.2 Broadstone House and is attended by staff from Homes for Lambeth.

We are also scheduling monthly Saturday drop-ins for those who are unable to attend during the week. We will send leaflets to all residents on the South Lambeth estate with the date and time in due course.

As a reminder, you can contact me by phone or email if you have a query, or alternatively, I will visit you at your home on request. Please be assured that anything we discuss will be in confidence.

Best regards,
Yvonne Williams
Independent Adviser (Tpas)
