Church Urban Fund has developed an online tool that provides information on a range of poverty-related indicators at the parish level. Entering your postcode in to this tool allows you to see where your parish ranks, nationally or within the diocese, on ten different indicators including child poverty, pensioner poverty and life expectancy.
Originally launched in May 2012, this tool has recently been updated, incorporating 2011 Census data and other more recent data sets.
This short paper is a summary of the key findings from the updated tool.
Download the App: you can now get this tool on your smart phone. We have developed an app to give you information about the parish you’re standing in, or any parish of interest in the country. Download this app today and have all this information at your fingertips. (iPhone version or Android version.)
