The Cardiff South West Neighbourhood Partnership area includes the 4 Electoral Wards of Canton, Riverside, Ely and Caerau and is served by the Canton and Ely policing team.

The population of Cardiff South West is 55,400, according to the mid-2014 population estimates, which is approximately 15.6% of Cardiff’s total population. The Neighbourhood has a higher proportion of persons aged 0-15 and 30-44 than the Cardiff average. Conversely, it has a lower proportion of persons aged 16-29 and post retirement age.

According to the 2011 Census 83.8% of residents were of white ethnicity. This is slightly lower than the Cardiff average of 84.7%.

The area generally has higher unemployment claimant rates than the Cardiff average, whilst more than two-fifths of children aged 0-15 live in the most deprived decile of education domain in Wales according to the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation. Similarly, around half of 0-15 year olds live in the worst decile, or tenth, of communities in terms of income deprivation, more than 5 times the expected share.

Neighbourhood Partnership Action Plans

The aim of the Neighbourhood Action plans is to coordinate evidence based multi-agency problem-solving. The Action Plans have been developed to ensure that the Partnership groups work to identify need and local solutions to improve the quality of life for citizens under the seven outcomes identified in the What Matters strategy.
