Southwark is a borough of contrasts. High levels of wealth co-exist alongside high levels of poverty. We believe this results in two Southwarks – one where people have better chances and one where they have worse. Evidenced in our independent report, A Tale of Two Southwarks, it explains that rather than a dividing line, Southwark has pockets of poverty and deprivation throughout the borough.
Most of the issues currently facing Southwark cluster around the issues of community and opportunity. In short, the research evidences and we passionately believe, a poverty of opportunities leads to a weaker community for all. This report evidences the top ten priority hidden, unmet and emerging local community needs in the borough. Southwark Giving’s vision is where all people have the opportunity to live fulfilled lives.
