Low-income neighbourhoods in Britain: the gap between policy ideas and residents' realities: executive summary

Summary that examines the relationship between ‘poverty’ and ‘place’ in six low-income areas, drawing on residents’ accounts to explain different patterns of neighbourhood change.

It is based on the findings of a four-year research study, which has captured how communities’ distinctive socio-cultural and historical features impact on people’s experiences and perceptions, and on a report that highlights the implications these have for current policy agendas.
