The Regeneration team work to tackle issues of social exclusion in the city such as worklessness, poverty and financial exclusion.
If you live in a disadvantaged area choices may be very limited. Schools may not be good. Businesses could be struggling. Public transport and housing may be poor.
Southampton has a number of areas with high levels of disadvantage and deprivation. Regeneration aims to help these neighbourhoods through working with communities to develop opportunities, more jobs and a safer place to live with better schools, good homes and a sense of community.
Our vision is for Southampton to be a city where no one is seriously disadvantaged because of where they live, their personal circumstances or the community they belong to and where everyone has the chance to acquire the skills, confidence and employment opportunities they need to improve their quality of life.
