WLM St Luke’s is a unique community space in Kennington, Lambeth. We provide communal accommodation for low-income workers, offices for local start-ups and a wide range of support and education projects for local residents.

Our focus is financial resilience: we want our community to feel strong and confident about their finances: whether this is starting and sustaining paid work, managing household budgets, or accessing the right support services. We empower people to support each other and devise creative solutions to the problems that they face.

Our own financial health is a top priority. We are developing a range of enterprise activities, with the income from our accommodation and office space being essential in allowing us to continue and further develop our work.

Financial resilience

Money affects almost every aspect of our lives. It connects closely to our values, hopes and ambitions, as well as our worries, fears and frustrations. Perhaps most importantly, it affects our relationships with others and how we view ourselves.

Stresses and anxieties about money can impact negatively on people’s, health, well-being and family relationships. People often start worrying about money problems a long time before they decide to look for help, and by the time they do, their problems have often become a lot worse. Our service offers people someone they can talk to before they start getting into trouble.

From September 2014 to March 2016, 268 Lambeth residents, employees and volunteers have completed our training to become Money Champions. Take a look at our inaugural Money Champions Review here. Following this successful initiative, we now offer money coaching and a wide range of financial capability workshops free for the community.

If you’d be interested in supporting us as a volunteer with the project please see our role description HERE

'So very grateful to all of you for your encouragement, advice and support that have helped me over the line with Universal Credit… a prayer answered' 


If you would like us to deliver a workshop to your organisation, our workshops can be tailored to meet your needs and can include topics such as 'brilliant budgeting', 'switch and save' (in relation to energy costs), an introduction to debt, and our newest workshop, understanding Universal Credit.
