About Churchill Ward
Churchill Ward is a vibrant and diverse community in south Westminster. There are 12,516 residents according to the 2014 census.
The majority of residents have lived in this ward all their life or over 20 years – higher than the Westminster average. According to the Churchill Ward Profile 2009 the community is the most stable in Westminster: “Churchill has the lowest proportion of people who have lived in the ward for under 2 years, and 60% of people have lived in the Westminster area for 11 years or more (41% in the same property for over 11 years), and 43% of respondents had lived in Westminster for over 20 years. The high proportions (60%) of households in social housing contributes to the high stability of the local population.”
Although in the heart of Central London, disparities in health and opportunities are sharp: a boy growing up in Lancaster ward in Westminster can expect to live 11 years more than a boy growing up in Churchill ward.  endchildpoverty.org.uk
