As part of their COVID-19 response, Wandsworth and Richmond councils have been looking at publicly available data to identify areas of greater need, in order to support local residents and businesses. Additional local data will be added as it becomes available.
We have made this information available through the resources below and published them on our public data sites to support the response of voluntary and community organisations.
- COVID-19 Local Cases & Deaths: information on local COVID-19 cases and deaths
- COVID-19 Vulnerabilities Dashboard: information on vulnerable characteristics of the population and economy
- COVID-19 Web Map: interactive map of vulnerable characteristics of population and proximity to services
- COVID-19 Additional Resources: additional online sources of information to support Coronavirus response planning

Key Messages: Wandsworth
There are three clusters of wards across Wandsworth that appear to be areas of greater need across several factors.
Roehampton and West Putney are amongst the most populous areas for those aged 65+ and are also areas where high proportions of 65+ live alone.
In addition to Roehampton; Furzedown, Tooting and the Battersea Park area tend to have higher prevalence of heart disease, respiratory disease and other conditions. These areas are also relatively more deprived and have lower internet usage.
The exact impact of COVID-19 and reduced social contact on economy, income and employment is unclear at the moment. It will likely to disproportionately impact those who are self-employed, in jobs that cannot be done from home or in sectors that depend on footfall (retail, restaurants, pubs etc.). It will also impact those with less skilled jobs or those working temporary or short-term contracts.
COVID-19 Web Map
This web map has been built to provide data on population groups that are considered vulnerable and to help visualise geographic trends in these groups.
- Please see the ‘Web Map Data‘ section below for a definition of each layer
- Use the tick box next to each layer to turn it on or off:
- As layers are semi-transparent, multiple layers can be turned on at once to overlay data
- It is recommended that users do not try to overlay more than two or three layers at a time else patterns will be hard to interpret
- When using the health conditions layers, ensure the top-level ‘Heath 2017 – 2018’ layer is turned on
- To see the point features (e.g. doctors, pharmacies, food shops, schools), zoom further into the map
- Users can use the map to search by Postcode or Street
- See in full screen
Example- where are the largest numbers of older residents that could be struggling to get out and get supplies?:
- To see where the largest population of 65+ living alone is, you click 65 > Living Alone ONS 2018.
- To see areas with a large number of 65+ living in households where everyone is 65+, you click All Household 65 > ONS 2018.
- The two layers combined give you an idea of those areas you might want to target.
- You then might want to overlay the ‘Food Shops’ layer to see what the local suppliers are and assess the likelihood that they deliver.
