It’s always interesting finding examples of the different charities that use Indices of Deprivation to target initiatives. For example the Church and Community Fund gives grants to projects run by Anglican churches or organisations working in partnership with the Church. Targeting is based on deprivation:
“Projects that are seeking grants must be located in one of 50% the most deprived of parishes in England as listed by the Index of Multiple Deprivation rankings for parishes, 2010.”
In the first quarter of 2015 it gave £210,386 to 15 projects which included developing a healthy food coop at a church in London, IT and employment skills classes in Bradford, extending provision for an organisation that helps asylum seekers and refugees in Ripon and Leeds, and a work experience programme focused on 17-24 year-olds in Liverpool.
