Poverty and inequality indicators for London have been updated. The Lambeth data set can be seen and explored here. The news is not encouraging, and most of these indicators will worsen, at least in the short term, as a consequence of the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Lambeth is worse than the London averages in infant mortality, premature mortality, qualifications at 19, income inequality, poverty rate, housing affordability, rough sleeping and unemployment rates. It is London-average in evictions, housing delivery, temporary accomodation and pay inequality. It is better than average in GCSE attainment and in the % of those without qualifications.
Our focus is in helping low-income Lambeth citizens improve their whole-life earning capacity. We do this by funding a wide range of activity and opportunity - you'll find details on our website. Can the situation improve? Of course. A first step is for us all to be aware of how things stand now for so many of our fellow citizens.
