All you need to know about Newham!

NEW edition of the CIU’s Newham Key Statistics Profile for 2013 available to download now!

Aston-Mansfield’s Community Involvement Unit (CIU) has launched a new edition of its profile of key statistics, updated for 2013. ‘Newham: Key Statistics 2013’ is a detailed factsheet about Newham providing information for community groups to use when researching need, planning activities and applying for funding.

The profile was researched and compiled by Sarah Taverner (Volunteer), supported by Anne Crisp (Community Development Worker). This year the profile has benefitted from new data from the 2011 Census, providing detailed information on wide-ranging topics.

A wide range of other sources such as the Newham Health Profile (2012) and London Poverty Profiles have also been used.

Although lengthy, the factsheet is designed to be easy to navigate, and allows the reader to jump from the contents page to specific sections. Links are included in the endnotes for readers to explore the data further.

The CIU has no funding to print copies of the profile but  the full report – as well as individual factsheets on each of the themes covered within it – are available to download here

For further information or to provide feedback, please contact Anne Crisp at Aston-Mansfield’s Community Involvement Unit at
