Lambeth remains in Tier 4

The Government update on Covid-19 yesterday (30 December) confirmed no change to Lambeth's Tier 4 status.
It is now more important than ever we play our part and prevent the virus spreading.
What does that mean?

The Government's Kickstart programme is designed to help young people (16-24) who are currently on universal credit to develop the skills and experience they need to find work, through valuable six month job placements.
