Southwark Giving are delighted to feature in London’s Giving first and pioneering report, ‘A Place To Give London’s Place-Based Giving Movement in the Spotlight’. London’s Giving recently launched this report and London’s Giving film, (Password: londonsgiving), which gathers valuable insights and learnings from many of London’s Giving schemes across the city.
Southwark Giving is delighted to feature as a case study in the report sharing learnings about the crucial importance of working collaboratively across a wide range of sectors – including working effectively with businesses. Southwark Giving firmly believe in the power of cross-sector collaboration and the importance of working as effectively as possible within the unique richness that multi-perspectives can bring – especially when focusing on creating innovative solutions to pressing local community needs.
The London’s Giving network provide an easy way for the different giving schemes to come together to share learnings, support and together help unite London to tackle disadvantage locally. Southwark Giving is part of London’s Giving network because we understand the crucial importance of connection, particularly in this context as each place-based giving scheme seeks to best serve their own boroughs to maximum effect to help meet the most pressing community needs. Together, all giving schemes are creating significant positive social impact by addressing pressing local community needs across the capital.
