RBA working to serve the community
RBA listens to the local community, consequently we offer suitable services. We keep in touch with local trends and other community groups so we can meet real needs.
The local area
You can find out about Redditch in lots of different ways. We have used online data, in addition to our own stats, for these maps showing local issues. The online data uses 9 scores, as a result you can compare all of the UK equally.
In each map;
- The Academy is the blue pin.
- The rings show where our users live.
- The wards are coloured according to their scores, darker areas have greater needs.
