What is Southwark Giving?

Southwark Giving is a placed-based giving scheme which is being set up to find new ways to address hidden, unmet and emerging local community needs.

In Southwark we have a thriving business and voluntary sector who currently invest in local communities through Corporate Responsibility programmes and outreach work. Yet there are still great inequalities, impacting on the health and wellbeing of our communities that need targeted support to change.

Southwark Giving will enable anyone to give time, skills and/or money in collaboration with others to help make a difference to people’s lives.

Our vision is of a Southwark where all people have the opportunity to live fulfilled lives.

Our mission is to unite Southwark to tackle local disadvantage. We will do this by:

  • Working in partnership with different sectors to invest in effective solutions for local needs
  • Creating opportunities for everyone to give what they can; time, skills and/or money
  • Raising awareness about local needs to bring the community together

We will develop strategic cross-sector partnerships to create a fund to enable focused employer supported and community volunteering and inspire active local community engagement.

Southwark Giving is being managed within Community Southwark, a registered charity. The development of Southwark Giving is being supported by Southwark Giving’s Strategic Partnership Board.

The Strategic Partnership Board is currently exploring the ways in which Southwark Giving can best help meet the hidden, unmet and emerging needs of the borough of Southwark. They are doing this by designing the Southwark Giving Fund, volunteering opportunities and community activities that Southwark Giving will offer.

Community Southwark is a registered charity (no. 1105835) and a company limited by guarantee in England and Wales (no. 5090324).
