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
