Back in January and February, London Creative Labs did a couple of events in association with the Capital Community Foundation who are a grantmaking foundation in South London. They are currently working with donors in supporting work in the area surrounding Loughborough Junction in Lambeth, for the benefit of the community. This is a rundown, deprived area with lots of social and economic challenges. These events provided an opportunity for residents, businesses, local community groups and service providers to help identify ways in which any future investment could benefit the area and improve people’s lives. As ever, we posted the harvest from those events shortly afterwards, and are now linking to them from this blog.
Nearly 50 local residents, community activists, public sector workers and councillors mapped assets, needs and opportunities of the Loughborough Junction neighbourhood using an enhanced version of the Bigger Picture mapping process from our Social Startup Labs toolkit. Then they discussed the underlying themes with a focus on coming up with solutions. Read more about Loughborough Speaks!

Over 20 local people considered the solutions from the previous event, came up with their own solutions and explored those solutions in more detail. Read more about Loughborough Speaks Again!
