Southwark Giving

Over the last Year Community Southwark have been working with key local strategic partners to start the process of developing a giving scheme for the borough. A formal advisory board, committed to driving the progress of Southwark Giving, has been established and includes representatives from Southwark council, United St Saviours Charity, Wakefield & Tetley Trust, Team London Bridge, Better Bankside, Norton Rose Fulbright, AMV BBDO, Bond Dickinson, Gowling WLG, The Stress Exchange, and Good People.  In October 2016 a piece of independent research was completed exploring needs in the borough. This will be published soon and will provide useful intelligence to help the advisory board to identify priorities and develop a model for a giving scheme that can best access the time, talents and resources of companies and funders to meet the needs in our community.
