Reducing Inequalities Alliance

Lives in Bradford District and Craven are being cut short. People living in deprived areas of our district are more likely to die sooner than those in more affluent areas – this difference can be as much as 10 years.

To stop people dying early and to help people have a healthy and happy life, we need to work together to create a fairer district for all. To do this we will look to create opportunities for everyone to access quality care, stable jobs, fair pay, good housing and education.

As part of this effort, we’ve created the Reducing Inequalities Alliance. The alliance aims to support and coordinate collective action to reduce inequalities in Bradford District and Craven. It is made up of allies across our partner organisations. Watch our short animated video below to learn more.

Our four workstreams developed with our partners in the alliance are:
