Lewisham Council - International links

International links

Lewisham's well-established international links have contributed to community activities and inter-cultural learning for many years.

International projects give Lewisham residents a chance to listen and share ideas with groups all over the world, increasing cultural understanding and often contributing to improved community relationships.

Since 2010, the children and staff of ten primary schools, a team of football players, a group of singers in a choir, twenty sixth-form students, and many of Lewisham’s young advisers have been directly involved in international projects. 

Lewisham has also benefitted from many EU-funded projects. The Council has received over £1.5m funding since 2000, for projects ranging from environmental improvements to rivers to training BME business advisors.
