Vassall Labour Councillors set up new surgery to help people in Stannard Hall


Vassall Ward Labour Councillors Kingsley Abrams and Adrian Garden have set up a new monthly surgery at Stannard Hall in Vassall Ward to provide help to residents with money and other issues.

Stannard Hall (pictured) is a housing association block of flats on Cormont Road, SE5 specifically aimed at single unemployed people who would otherwise be homeless. Many of the residents have serious financial problems and have difficulty in obtaining the benefits and support that they are entitled to.

At the request of a resident, and with the support of the management, Labour Vassall Ward Councillors we have set up a monthly surgery in Stannard Hall to deal with a queue of people at each session. The Councillors work to help people by forwarding queries and complaints to the appropriate officers in Lambeth as well as providing advice and support.
