Funders are always keen to fund projects in deprived areas, however many organisations don’t always realise how deprived the areas they work in are, or they want to support those from deprived areas through their initiatives and programmes, but again aren’t always aware of how deprived an area is.
Below are two useful tools to help organisations with this.
The first is a heat map that helps highlight how deprived an area is. The second is a postcode checker which not only highlights what decile an area is (how deprived an area is – with decile 1 being the most deprived, and 10 being the least deprived), but also breaks this down into various elements e.g., income, crime, health etc.
