Demonstrating Effective Neighborhood Delivery North Fulham NDC Abi Gilbert - Health and Well Being Theme Manager
Prosperous and healthy, but low “quality of life Good for children, strong economy but poor environment Affluent, dynamic and well located Levels of inequality reflect extreme wealth and deprivation Hammersmith & Fulham is already an exciting place to live and work. Its economy is growing, we have a thriving cultural and sporting scene and a high rate of new businesses starting up using the borough as a base. However, we face real challenges too. This is a borough of contrasts where too many people feel that the ladder of opportunity has slipped away… The statistics paint the picture. On one hand the Parliamentary constitution of Hammersmith & Fulham is the 15th richest in Britain, yet one in five of our workforce are on some form of benefits. We have the fourth highest property prices in the UK, yet we are second only to Tower Hamlets with the number of children receiving free school meals… H&F Council Leader Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, lbhf.gov.uk Continued economic success, danger of inequality growing What is H & F like?
