Overview

Redbridge is a north eastern Outer London borough, which is 25% covered by forest and green spaces. It provides a mixed picture regarding poverty and inequality. The poverty rate of 25% is narrowly below the London average, as is the 19.9% of workers who are low-paid. Only a quarter of 19 year olds in Redbridge lack level 3 qualifications (A level equivalent) – the second lowest rate in London.
