Increased Security At Stephen Lawrence Centre

The Mayor of Lewisham has agreed that a one-off grant of up to £15,000 should be made available to increase security at the Stephen Lawrence Centre in Deptford.

The funds will be used by the Centre to engage a consultant and help improve security around the building.

Sir Steve Bullock, Mayor of Lewisham, said:

“We are extremely proud to have the Stephen Lawrence Centre in Lewisham and have worked very closely with them over the years. The Centre is an important facility for young people locally and across London. Since the recent incident we have been working with the Centre’s management to find ways to stop this happening again.”

The Mayor approved the funding at a meeting of the Mayor & Cabinet on Wednesday, 5 March.
