Introduction

In common with most cities, Plymouth is faced with pockets of poverty and deprivation. Poverty is not just an issue of low income. It can be related to many other issues such as poor housing, lower educational outcomes and lower healthy life expectancy or a higher risk of long-term illness.

Approximately 9,990 (18.6 per cent) children currently live in poverty in the city. In some more deprived areas of the city, over half of children are estimated to be living in poverty. A more detailed profile of child poverty and the current plan can be found in the Child Poverty Needs Assessment.

Levels of crime in Plymouth remain relatively low at 90 crimes per 1,000 resident population compared to similar areas at 107.7 per 1,000 residents. Overall reported crime has increased year on year for the past three years in Plymouth which mirrors national trends. More information on levels of crime and other issues of community safety can be found in the Safer Plymouth Strategic Assessment 2019/20.
