Lambeth ACCORD

Lambeth ACCORD is a leading London disability charity and provides managed office space and a conference and training centre. This community resource centre acts as the ‘hub’ for a thriving diverse disability community in Brixton, South London and has been awarded the prestigious quality standard, Star Social Firm.

 

Lambeth ACCORD has been an important centre for disabled people in Lambeth for the last 27 years and is about to embark on an ambitious £7 million refurbishment and extension to enhance existing facilities and upgrade the building to become again the leading edge exemplar model for accessibility, sustainability and modern environmental standards.

Lambeth ACCORD is a Centre of Excellence for the disability sector. It positively encourages people with disabilities by example through its employment practises, by providing support and affordable office space to sixteen disability charities, nurturing new disability charities and through supplier selection. It also provides accessible meeting space for third sector organisations and local churches.

 Manager Adrian Harris commented “Being awarded Star Social Firm status will be of enormous benefit to Lambeth ACCORD. The qualification process itself was very rigorous and it comes at a very important time for us as we start fundraising to enable us to complete the redevelopment of the current site. As a badge of quality it will demonstrate to customers, partners and donors that we are a reliable business that inspires confidence.”
