Mike Wilson on community responses to food insecurity

The settlement movement established to connect advantaged and disadvantaged communities in the 19th Century helped to forge the welfare state in the U.K., and underpinned the nursing and social work professions in the U.S. Mike Wilson and colleagues at the Pembroke House have been building a Settlement for the 21st Century. That work has both gone on hold and been significantly advanced by the need to respond to the pandemic. In this episode Mike talks about food insecurity, and how in classic settlement style, it has brought together people across the Walworth community in South London.
