Fact of the Day

Men die more than 11 years earlier in the most deprived parts of Hartlepool compared to those in the wealthiest areas. The gap in life expectancy is 11.3 years between the richest and poorest people in town.

For women, those in the least deprived areas can expect to live just over seven years longer than those in the poorest parts.

Louise Wallace, director of public health at Hartlepool Borough Council also explained, “We are one of the most deprived areas in the country and child poverty statistics show about 30% of the children are living in child poverty.”
