Blackpool transience project

About transience

Areas of Blackpool suffer from severe deprivation:

  • Levels of crime and unemployment are high
  • Health is poor
  • Life expectancy is low 
  • Housing is predominately poor quality and privately rented

The transience programme has been funded from the 'Transformation Challenge Award' to pioneer a new approach to public service delivery.

The transience programme is working with three target areas:

  • South Beach
  • Central 
  • Claremont

We are working with the community to increase resilience and working on the issues that they think are important.

Objectives of transience are:

  • To decrease incidents of anti- social behaviour and crime
  • To reduce crime reports to the local authority
  • To improve the health and well-being of the population of the inner area
  • To strengthen the resilience of communities in the inner area to ultimately reduce transience
  • To decrease the number of house hold fires
  • To improve skills, and move the population closer to the employment market
