To deliver services which meet the needs of local people, it is important that we collect information about people’s needs. Some of this we do through discussion with our users, surveys, focus groups and feedback from courses that people attend. We also collect statistics on both the local area and through national reports, to provide a picture of the challenges facing New Cross Gate. The data is very useful in supporting fundraising efforts, both for ourselves and for other local groups.
The following reports provide useful background on the needs and demographics of our local community.
