Southwark Community Action Networks (CANs)

These are developing in each part of this borough. There is a wealth of community activity going on already in every part of Southwark – but sometimes it is hard for people to find out what is on their doorstep or know how they can get involved. Southwark CANs will help you get the information and support that you need to get more involved in your local community.


  • If you have an idea for something you want to develop in your community;
  • if you want to know more about issues, activities, groups and networks in your area; or
  • if you are concerned about issues affecting your community;
  • We want to work with TRAs, charities and community groups. If you want to find out more, or want us to deliver a workshop, please get in touch!
