2 2008 Household Survey Population profile Community and NDC Key areas Headline findings and recommendations

3 Introduction - 1 This document presents results for South Kilburn New Deal for Communities (SKNDC) partnership for the 2008 Household Survey. The Household Survey is conducted by Ipsos MORI and commissioned by the predecessor of the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam University. Its purpose is to gather data on the experiences and perceptions of residents who live in NDC areas, focusing on the following: – Housing – Quality of life in area – Community – Crime – Household demographic information – Work – Education – Health – Finance The survey shows change between survey waves in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 and comparisons with the NDC aggregate. National comparisons are included where available. 3

4 Introduction - 2 It should be noted that SKNDC was renamed as South Kilburn Partnership in December 2008. However, as the survey was conducted in 2008, for the purposes of this document it shall consistently be referred to as South Kilburn New Deal for Communities, or SKNDC. 2008 results are based on 400 interviews conducted face-to-face in the home among residents between May-October 2008. 2002, 2004 and 2006 results are based on 501, 497 and 402 interviews conducted between July-October 2002, June-November 2004, May-October 2006 respectively. Sample sizes of this magnitude have a very high level of statistical reliability and are generally reflective of overall perceptions. As the survey is designed to track changes over time, as many follow-up interviews as possible with NDC residents who has been contacted in previous survey waves were conducted. Interviews with respondents at the address where the original respondent had moved or died were also conducted (52% of respondents). The remainder of the interviews were conducted with residents from newly-drawn sample of addresses. NDC aggregate results are based on interviews conducted across all 39 NDC areas; 19,574 in 2002, 19,633 in 2004, 15,792 in 2006 and 15,840 in 2008. 4

5 Introduction - 3 Please note that the NDC aggregate results are provisional and have not yet been confirmed by DCLG, so are highly confidential and not contained in this document. These will be shown on the website as soon as they have been confirmed. Data are weighted to correct for multiple dwellings or households at addresses. Data based on individual responses are also weighted to reflect the number of adults aged 16+ in each household and by gender and age profiles for each area based on updated census information. The source for national comparisons are shown as footnotes. Note that many of these should be viewed as indicative, given slight differences in how questions are asked, differences in timing and fieldwork approaches. For questions based on all respondents, differences of more than 7 or 8 percentage points are required between the 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 figures for SKNDC to be sure they represent actual changes and are not due to chance. Similarly, differences of 8 percentage points are required between findings for SKNDC and the NDC aggregate/national to be sure they represent actual differences. Only residents aged 16+ were interviewed as part of the survey. 5

It is believed these may be linked Levels of trust in South Kilburn NDC has increased significantly since its establishment, as have levels of trust in Brent Council South Kilburn is perceived as a place where neighbours look out for each other by just under half of its residents

15 Key areas Home and area Crime and safety Work and income Health Education and training

16 Home and area 3/4 satisfied with their accommodation and the area. 50% want to move from their property, and a small proportion of these want to move from the South Kilburn area. Just 14% of residents think the area has recently become much or slightly worse to live, but a significant minority perceive teenagers hanging around on the street (38%) and drug dealing and use (34%) to be problems. Crime and safety Fear of crime and concern for safety has declined to very low levels. Just 9% fear crime ‘a great deal’ in the area and 14% feel very unsafe walking alone in/around the area after dark. Fear levels of crime is still much higher than the frequency that such incidents take place. Key areas

17 Work and income The proportion of those who are in paid work, unemployed, living in a workless household or receiving benefits have remained in line with previous years and the NDC average. However, employment rates and receipt of benefits have both declined slightly. Household income remains low. The most common income band for South Kilburn households is £100-199 per week. 48% of households’ weekly income is below £300. Health Increase in residents who report their health has been ‘good’ in the past year to 56% Satisfaction levels with family doctors or GPs are very high at 89%, and three- quarters find it easy to access them. Key areas

18 Education & training The proportion of residents who have no qualifications has remained stable; 32% of all respondents and 25% of respondents of working age. Base: All respondents: South Kilburn 400 (2008) QED2Do you think you need to improve any of the following skills? Key areas

19 DIVERSE is substantially increasing – 68% BME, 46% ENFL Provides a challenge to SKP in meeting a vast variety of need. HIGHLY TRANSIENT – 20% population change every 2 years May impact on knowledge of SKP. Need for consistent and strong outreach & communication with residents. YOUNG PEOPLE NOT CONSULTED – within Household Survey Given significant young population, SKP must continue to capture the perceptions of this group in other ways. ¾ residents SATISFIED WITH ACCOMODATION & South Kilburn area. However half would still like to MOVE from their current property. SKP to continue to drive forward opportunities for the housing Master Plan and keep residents updated. Headline findings & recommendations

20 Over a third of residents perceive both ‘teenagers hanging around’ and drug dealing to be serious problems. SKP role in addressing these problems whilst challenging perceptions of young people. Key priority for our local services. Fear of crime rates largely outweigh chances of being a victim. However, residents do fear those crimes which occur most frequently. SKP role to continue to increase safety of residents and their property for certain crime types, whilst challenging fear and perceptions through PR & success info. Employment levels have declined slightly but may well decline further. Conversely receipt of benefits has also declined. Given current economic climate SKP could consider arrangements to support residents back into employment in due course, whilst assisting residents to access entitlements where appropriate. Headline findings & recommendations

21 10% of residents do not use finance systems such as bank, post office or credit card accounts. SKP may wish to find ways to increase numbers able to access financial advice and banking in so doing promoting financial inclusiveness. Of those in work, only 11% used a job centre/job market or training & employment agency office. Positive number of direct applicants. However potential for employment organisations – JC+, BI2W, Community Careers – to focus on those that may find it difficult to submit direct applications. Over a third of residents have no qualifications, whilst 43% would like to improve their skills level particularly in literacy & numeracy. Potential for SKP to promote and source opportunities for upskilling of residents, to improve career prospects and ensure residents are ‘job ready’ for the economic upturn.
