A new report by a Cumbrian charity is highlighting poverty and disadvantages across the county.
The Cumbria Community Foundation collected data to publish 'Cumbria Revealed', in the hope to portray what life is really like.
The report's findings will be used to tackle the issues, matching people who care with causes that matter to them.
The charity says it's responding by doubling long term funds and doubling the annual grant making.
Here's some of the findings from the report:
- 1 in 10 households live in poverty (including 11,700 children)
- 1 in 8 households have an income of less than £10,000 a year
- 1 in 5 people have a long-term health problem or disability
- 68% of adults are overweight
- 32,000 pensioners live alone
- 25% of the population will be aged over 65 in 2020
- 230 people killed or seriously injured on the roads each year
- 1 person takes their own life every week
- 34,000 people experience depression
- 1,800 people are diagnosed with dementia every year
