Social inclusion and involvement

Social inclusion and involvement in London by household income (2021-22)

Higher earning Londoners were more likely to have participated in at least one form of civic activity such as contacting their MP, local council, or signing a petition. 45% of people living in households in the bottom quintile for income said they participated in some sort of civic activity in the last 12 months, compared to 57% of people in the top income quintile.

There was a slightly larger difference between income groups for people reporting that they did not feel socially isolated; 85% of people in the highest income households had someone they could turn to compared to just 63% in the lowest income households.
