Our Community


We work across North Camden Promise Zone, an area which also includes parts of Brent and Westminster. Our community is hugely diverse but masks significant deprivation and inequality.

Children in Camden speak over 134 different languages and dialects and 63% of births in Camden are to mothers born outside of the UK. But across the borough, over one in three children live in poverty. In our zone, that’s 3,439 children and young people.

Growing up in poverty means an increased likelihood that children will have shorter lives, lower earnings over the course of their professional careers and a higher prevalence of mental and physical health issues. They are also more likely to end up excluded from school or in prison.
