OCSI helps secure funding for the most deprived communities across Bedfordshire and Luton

OCSI’s Need Measurements study was central to Bedfordshire and Luton Investing in Communities (IiC) Partnership being awarded annual funding of over £5 million under the East of England Development Agency IiC programme. OCSI were commissioned by the Partnership to develop and assess the evidence base regarding deprivation, in order to identify areas and/or themes for potential development. Further OCSI work in collaboration with Roger Tym is identifying gaps in provision across the County, in order to target resources at specific programmes for the most deprived areas and communities.
