Who we are

Local GPs

GP surgeries from across Lambeth coming together to make sure we get our population of 340,000 residents vaccinated. It’s been an incredible effort as we have had clinicians, receptionists, administrators and volunteers come together to get the job done. And we could not do it without the support and partnership of community organisations.

Gail Thompson

Bit about me: I am big into jazz music and played saxophone professionally until I contracted Multiple Sclerosis in 1990. I am now the founder and CEO of Millennium Community Solutions CIC, working to support disabled and elderly communities. I am also a reverend and work at SOAS university as a chaplain. I have also lived in Herne Hill my whole life and so love Lambeth very deeply!

Bit about me: As a volunteer for Friends of Tate Brixton Libraries gardening group, I have shared my love of gardening with the community. Now, working with Age UK Lambeth, I hope to continue meeting new people and making a difference with the right tools and information. It is a pleasure to learn new skills with such an active and friendly group.

Fatima Teixeira

My superpower is patience and the ability to listen and I also speak Portuguese, French and Spanish. I have taught information technology across many diverse communities andI am now working with Age UK Lambeth to assist older people in the borough - I may even share my knowledge of traditional Portuguese cooking and astrology!

Ferisa Symister

 I like to work in the community to find out the thoughts and feelings of the people living there. I very much subscribe to Lambeth's "for us but not without us" mantra as you cannot form connecting communities without its residents who want to be consulted and included in shaping their borough. The health and wellbeing of Lambeth's residents is important and going forward it would be nice to see a happy and safe multicultural lambeth.
