List of ‘left-behind’ neighbourhoods

 

OCSI and Local Trust have developed a quantitative measure of ‘left-behind’ neighbourhoods using open data. 

To identify neighbourhoods that could be defined as left-behind we focused on the areas that suffered the dual disadvantage of:

  1. High levels of deprivation and socio-economic challenges
  2. Lacking in the community and civic assets, infrastructure and investment required to mitigate these challenges.

We identified the neighbourhoods that were ranked in the worst ten percent in both the Community Needs Index and Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 2019.  This showed there were 225 ‘left-behind’ wards in England. 

The research shows concentrations of left-behind neighbourhoods in housing estates outlying big towns and cities, such as Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Birmingham, Middlesbrough, Hull and Stoke, as well as in post-industrial areas in northern England and coastal areas in southern England.

The full list of wards is available below. You can also download the list of neighbourhoods and their area codes, as well as their corresponding local authority and region.
