Living Bankside was formally established in 1995, and ever since, it is run by residents for the benefit of residents. At the time of a proposed immense change in the area, including Tate Modern and the Borough Market, the residents got together to influence that change, wanting to start seeing positive things happen in the neighbourhood.
Since then, our mission has expanded in multiple directions. Our work focuses on the people who are living, working, studying and visiting the Bankside, Borough and the SE1 area. We exist to ensure that our people are able to meaningfully influence and contribute to regeneration and positive change.
