St. Vincent's Family Project mainly focuses on the southern part of Westminster, which consists of the following wards: Churchill, St. James's, Vincent Square, Tachbrook and Warwick. The families who live in these wards in particular, experience child poverty, stark inequality and housing pressures, which all contributes to a tougher family environment. 

Westminster is a borough of stark inequality

The borough is the third most prosperous in the UK in terms of average resident's income, yet, 14% of Westminster's neighbourhoods account for 10% of the most deprived boroughs in England in relation to the income associated. According to a Save the Children report, 24% of children in Westminster are living in 'severe poverty'.One direct example of this poverty is that 32% of children, who live in the borough, are eligible to receive free school meals. A more indirect response to this stark inequality is that 30% of housing is overcrowded in the borough. Our mission is to support those who are living in these conditions by providing essential services in the area.
