The purpose of this report is to present a ‘Deep Dive’ of publicly available health and social data for the town of Maryport. The OCSI (2019) report on left behind communities was used to guide the analysis.
Presentation of health and social data for the town of Maryport accessed via a range of public data sources.
The data examined suggests that Maryport faces numerous socio-economic challenges. Such challenges relate to Income, employment, health, education and training as well as connectedness to key services and civic, educational and cultural assets – ‘facilities that provide things to do often, at no or little cost’ (OCSI, 2019). Moreover, the Index of Multiple Deprivation (table 56 above) places six of the seven Maryport LSOAs within the 40% most deprived in England; this indicates that Maryport residents are generally lacking access to the resources required to meet their needs; resources that are perceived as customary to the rest of society. These challenges are most pressing for the neighbourhoods covered by the adjacent LSOAs Allerdale 005A (Ellenborough: South) and Allerdale 005B (Ewanrigg: North), and the MSOA Allerdale 005.
Despite there being no Maryport wards identified as ‘left behind’ by OCSI (2019) this is largely due to the configuration of ward boundaries there wherein the two most deprived LSOAs are allocated to different wards. Had this not been the case, and had a ward been constituted that included both Allerdale 005A and 005B, then that ward would certainly have been identified as Left Behind.
