Abstract

This project sought to explore the experiences and unmet needs of individuals living in deprived areas of Portsmouth with regard to access to health services, education, housing, good quality employment, support networks and social arrangements.

Whilst the Portsmouth Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2022-2030 aims to make Portsmouth a healthy and happy city, several areas of Portsmouth are some of the most deprived areas of the country. Those living in more deprived areas or experiencing health inequalities are more likely to live more of their lives in poorer health and experience lower life expectancy and productivity.
