Love Bradford Logo

The LoveBradford initiative is working with charity partners to provide gifts for children and practical support for families within our city.

Bradford District ranks 13th in the most deprived local authority in England and 2nd most deprived in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

If we take a closer look at Bradford, we see a place – and indeed a population – challenged by persistently low wages, poor educational attainment and consistently high levels of both poverty and social security benefit uptake. Alarmingly, children in two Bradford constituencies were amongst the ten poorest in the country in 2020/21, with half of all children in Bradford West (51.2 per cent) and Bradford East (50.1 per cent) living in poverty.
