Bolton is a post industrial northern town, it has boroughs that have high percentages of multiple deprivation and has below average life expectancy and high rates of adult illiteracy.
For several years Bolton has experienced very high levels of migration both from the European Union and the rest of the world, this has created its set of problems with the indigenous community. Bolton Community Forum works to bring these diverse communities together and fights for community cohesion.
