Streatham Action - The Streatham Civic Forum

Welcome to the Streatham Action website. Streatham Action is a local community forum established to give a voice to residents and improve life, work and play in the area. We do this by supporting and working with local groups, residents and businesses to turn good ideas into reality, as well as providing opportunities for discussion on issues affecting the local area and sharing information across Streatham’s communities. It's a place for residents and local groups - like neighbourhood watches, residents associations, action groups, forums and individual campaigners  - to share ideas, news and get their voices heard. And it's a focus to urge local service providers to do what we want, not what they think we want.

The forum is a volunteer led organisation that is part of the Lambeth Forum Network and receives some funding from Lambeth Council. As well as using this to help run the organisation we provide grant opportunities to Streatham community groups and projects to fund activity that will benefit local people.

If you are interested in learning more about the work of the organisation or potentially joining us through general volunteering or becoming a Committee Member, please contact Streatham Action on 

Streatham action aims to connect the people of Streatham with the various civic interest groups and networks so that they can take action as individuals, and as a whole, to make Streatham a better place to live.
