Dulwich is one of the smallest Community Council areas in Southwark by population, yet one of the largest geographically.
It contains some of London’s most affluent and desirable areas in Dulwich Village and East Dulwich. Leafy College ward is circled by a number of estates containing high proportions of social housing.
Dulwich has a surprisingly high proportion of under 15s.
Yet it also has a higher than average proportion of over 65s (10%).
The proportion of White residents is the highest in the borough at 72%, and in Village ward is almost 80%: this contrasts with the lowest proportion of Black/African/Caribbean/Black British residents in the borough at 14%.
College ward’s communities are very different from the rest of the Community Council area, with twice the average level of benefits claimants, a higher proportion of people living in social accommodation and almost two-thirds living in flats and apartments.
