Brixton Pound

The Brixton Pound (B£) is a complementary currency accepted within around 200 small independent businesses in and around Brixton. Because B£s can only circulate within local participating businesses, the scheme stimulates local trade and production, and helps protect jobs and livelihoods through a stronger local economy.

B£ 2nd edition notes incl. David Bowie, Luol Deng, Len Garrison and Violette Szabo

The B£

  • supports the diversity and resilience in the local Brixton economy in light of a recession and chain store dominance.
  • seeks to encourage and facilitate a self help model and ethos in order to protect the social and financial futures of the residents of Brixton.
  • supports local sourcing of goods to decrease CO2 emissions.
  • seeks to raise Brixton’s profile regionally and nationally, and to contribute to positive perceptions of the area by drawing attention to its strong community, diverse economy and capacity for innovation.
