Lambeth Council Staff? Get Payroll Local!

For Lambeth staff in particular, signing up and using the Brixton Pound is a brilliant way to activate the values of the co-operative council - investing in local, being part of a more connected, sustainable community, and embracing new technologies.

Payroll Local is a scheme that allows Lambeth council staff to take some of their salary directly into electronic Brixton Pound (B£e). It’s completely optional, and those employees who participate can then use their B£ balance to treat themselves to lunch, go shopping or use services around Brixton, or donate to local charities (or a mixture of all of the above!).

In order to sign up for payroll local, please send an email to with the following information:

  • Name
  • Lambeth payroll number
  • DOB
  • Amount of B£ you would like to receive
No amount too small or too big. It can be amended on a monthly basis, and stopped at any time, with a month’s notice. 

You can then spend your B£s! Find out where in our directory. There is also a range of charities and community groups signed up to take donations in B£e.
