Local Area Survey 

Bethel – London’s Riverside Church has been actively involved in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham since it’s commencement in 1927. As part of our ongoing desire to be of help to the community we recently consulted with locals and undertook a Local Area Survey.

From those surveyed, the following statistics were found:

- 86% of people questioned are concerned about a lack of places to socialise outside of work or home.
- 93% are concerned about the levels of domestic violence, with 26% of respondents saying the problem is very serious.
- The biggest concern that local residents have is debt.
