Description:
The purpose of this study document is to provide an area profile of the communities that are served by the Daughters of Charity Community Services (DoCCS) using statistical data from the 2011 Census and the Pobal HP Deprivation Maps. By focusing on the ‘residence’ or ‘locality’ of 469 registered DoCCS participants in October 2013, as a snapshot in time, the study aims to show that the organisation, through its community education and social care services, is meeting its stated mission objective of directing and targeting its finite resources to those most in need in its catchment area of the north inner city of Dublin. It also aims to provide a deeper understanding and insight into the quality of life of the service participants who experience social disadvantage and exclusion in its community. The majority (81%) of the total number of registered participants were found to reside in the organisation’s core catchment area of Dublin north inner city which, defined in terms of postal area codes, is Dublin 7 and (a part of) Dublin 1. This core area corresponded to a total of 12 District Electoral Divisions (DEDs) based on the Census data. (A DED being the smallest legally defined administrative areas in the State for which small area population statistics [SAPS] are published from the Census). Within these DEDs, 16 sample small areas were selected, as the majority (70%) of those people who use the services of the DoCCS resided in these areas. (A small area is a sub-division of the DED and is the smallest geographical level for the purpose of the Census). The Census statistics reveal a picture of a mixed community, or more correctly, mixed communities and mixed need. Reflecting the changed demographic, economic and social landscape of the north inner city in recent decades, a total of 11 of the 12 DEDs that make up the core area of the DoCCS are classified as average using the Pobal HP Deprivation Index. Nine are classified as being marginally above average and two are marginally below average. One of the DEDs is classified as disadvantaged
