This report brings together the themes and findings that came out of research carried out in six areas with 10 young people from Southwark Young Advisors.
This research gives insight into the everyday lives of young people living, studying and working in Southwark. At the beginning of this period in November, London entered a second national lockdown. As we moved into December, the lockdown restrictions were relaxed for a short period. A third national lockdown started in early January 2021, demanding that people in England stay at home, except for limited reasons, and, unlike in November, largely closing schools and colleges.
The research focused on six areas, Camberwell, Dulwich, Elephant and Castle, Old Kent Road, Peckham and Walworth. This is part of a larger project that explores daily life in these areas, attitudes towards change, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on daily life.
