Partnership work in this area will reduce levels of inequality and, in the medium to long term, drive down the fear of crime, whilst improving health outcomes, increasing employment and encouraging more resident involvement in positive activities.

We will do this by:

  • Tackling issues associated with inequalities, including health inequalities
  • Increasing the ambition and aspiration of the residents living in our most deprived wards
  • Building confidence
  • Establishing projects and services right from the heart of the community
