New Deal for Communites

New Deal for Communities (NDC) is a key programme in the Government's strategy to tackle multiple deprivation in the most deprived neighbourhoods in the country, providing some of the poorest communities with financial resources to prioritise needs in a co-ordinated way.

All of the NDC partnerships are tackling five key themes of: poor job prospects; high levels of crime; educational under-achievement; poor health; and problems with housing and the physical environment. 17 pathfinder partnerships were announced in 1998, followed by a second round of 22 partnerships in 1999. Since the start of the programme approximately £2bn has been committed to the 39 partnerships.

NDCs aim to have: 

  • Long-term commitment (over 10 years).
  • Communities at the centre of change, in partnership with key agencies.
  • Community ownership and full involvement.
