Southwark’s Economic Wellbeing Strategy 2017-22:  A partnership for local growth

This is our refreshed Economic Wellbeing Strategy for 2017-2022 that outlines our plans to build a strong local economy for all, working in partnership with residents, businesses and the voluntary sector.

Southwark now has record numbers of residents in employment, dozens of businesses paying the London Living Wage and we’ve seen the creation of a Business Forum. Now, more than ever, we will help families, individuals and businesses through the challenges that the current economic climate brings. Being at the heart of London brings lots of opportunities – including locally through our major regeneration projects. We will demonstrate that we are a council that is open for business and will promote and support economic wellbeing by making Southwark a place:

1:         Where a job opportunity is available for every Southwark resident who wants to work

2:         Where businesses thrive and prosper

3:         With thriving town centres and dynamic digital centres that are great to visit, spend time in and enjoy

4:         Where we promote fair employment, financial inclusion and family friendly workplaces

The strategy is available to download here in its full form, and as a summary including a print-friendly A3 page version.
