Red Cross Vulnerability Maps

The following maps have been developed by Red Cross and all information can be access here.

The COVID-19 vulnerability index combines multiple sources of (mostly) open data to identify vulnerable areas and groups within Local Authorities and neighbourhoods (wards and Middle Layer Super Output Areas).

The Index currently maps clinical vulnerability (underlying health conditions), demographic vulnerability (over-70s, people seeking asylum), social vulnerability (barriers to housing and services, poor living environment, living in “left-behind” areas, loneliness, digital exclusion), and health inequalities.

Other vulnerabilities being added include:

  • Mental health
  • Economic vulnerability
  • Social isolation
  • Physical isolation from supermarkets, pharmacies

There’s more information about our approach, current indicators and data sources, and forthcoming vulnerabilities in this open document.
