Southwark is a central London borough characterised by considerable linguistic and ethnic diversity. The population in the borough has varying degrees of service entitlement, different needs and expectations of services and how they are delivered, and different degrees of visibility to service providers.
Southwark seeks to support and develop greater community resilience and independence among its residents. To support this aim, the research report focuses on the barriers to service access experienced by Latin American residents in Southwark. It is based on Census analysis and qualitative interviews and workshops with service providers in the third and the public sector across the borough.
This report is an output of the Servicing Super-Diversity: ESRC IAA Knowledge Exchange Fellowship.
