Why Peckham?

‘Because this is where we live and work’. With complex global change underway, we recognise the power that a local project like Peckham Levels can demonstrate, especially one which is serious, in its very design, to make sure it represents the full diversity and vitality of our neighbourhood.

Your hopes for Peckham Levels?

We have been harbouring an idea for a few years which we think could really come to life by connecting with the Peckham Levels Community Investment Scheme.

Our big ambition is to create a new social mobility and diversity enterprise designed to support young people to thrive within the world of work, grow their personal capacities to succeed, and rightfully assume positions of leadership
