How poor is the parish?

The Church Urban Fund produces data on poverty in England. The survey puts our parish among the most deprived in the country (ranking 828 out of 12,599, where 1 is the most deprived parish).

Child Poverty is ranked at 34% (Ranked 580/12,599; 1=most deprived).
Working age poverty is ranked at 18% (Ranked 1,020/12,599).
Pensioner Poverty is ranked at 37% (Ranked 407/12,599).

This highlights the need for the outstanding work of The ClementJames Centre – which supports the local community with a range of free educational, literacy and work programmes – and St Clement and St James CE Primary School. We are proud of these sister organisations and do all we can to support their work. Their work is part of our core mission.

The congregations of both churches reflect the diversity of the area.
