About Us


The Local Accountancy Project is currently a partner of ASSET (a consortium of four organizations that operates across four Boroughs (Bexley, Greenwhich, Lewisham, and Southwark) to provide financial management support and training to voluntary and faith groups.

The direct services provided by LAP allow mainly small and disadvantaged groups to have access to professional services at a rate substantially cheaper than that provided by private accountancy firms and individuals. We can answer most of your financial questions and help you control your finances more effectively and efficiently.

LAP is a charity and therefore has a better understanding of the financial activities of other charities and voluntary sector organisations. There are currently over 300 voluntary sector organisations in and around Southwark that use LAP`s services on an ongoing basis.

LAP currently has three qualified accountants with over thirty-five years experience between them.

LAP is headed by a qualified Chartered Management Accountant with a Masters Degree in Business Administration and diverse financial management skills and experience in industry, commerce and the 3rd Sector.

LAP trustees share a range of skills amongst them including, finance, accountancy, legal and consultancy.
