Facts and Figures

The Baytree Centre, located in the heart of Brixton in the London Borough of Lambeth, caters to women and girls living in some of Lambeth’s most disadvantaged wards, such as Coldharbour, Stockwell, Tulse Hill, Brixton Hill and Vassall. The latest deprivation data, from 2017, ranks Lambeth as the 9th most deprived borough in London and the 44th in the whole of England (out of 326).

Nearly a third of a million people live in Lambeth. Located in South London, between Wandsworth and Southwark, Lambeth has one of the largest geographic areas of any inner London borough. Largely residential, it is one of the most densely populated places in the country, with an average of 12,020 residents per square kilometre, more than twice the average population density of the capital. It has a complex social and ethnic mix, with large African and Portuguese populations, and is an important focus for the black Caribbean population.

Women and girls who access Baytree’s provision are representative of Lambeth’s complex cultural and ethnic mix.

Like many London boroughs, Lambeth has areas of affluence and of poverty, often found side by side. There is a persistent pool of economically inactive people with low economic and social mobility who often experience high levels of poor education, employment and health outcomes leading to social exclusion.
