British Red Cross Vulnerability Index

To help focus help on the most vulnerable neighbourhoods, the British Red Cross developed a COVID-19 Vulnerability Index.

The Index consist of the following:

  • Clinical vulnerability
  • Other health/wellbeing needs
  • Economic/financial vulnerability
  • Social vulnerability (including physical/geographical isolation)

This briefing document describes what’s currently available in the index and what they are considering adding in the future.

You can find out more via their website, and in this useful Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership briefing.
