Tackling Poverty report for Sussex
Tackling Poverty, part of the Sussex Uncovered series, looks into the population dynamics in Sussex and the levels of poverty and disadvantage in our communities.
The report highlights areas of high need in Sussex (including Hastings, Portslade, Crawley and Eastbourne) and four key challenges are presented in the report:
- An aging population
- High levels of long-term illness and poor outcomes for those with a disability
- Inflationary pressures are contributing towards financial hardship
- Multiple deprivation challenges in coastal communities
