30.08.2016 : Disconnected neighbourhoods - Joseph Rowntree Foundation
OVERCOMING DEPRIVATION AND DISCONNECTION IN UK CITIES - This report focuses on the poorest neighbourhoods across the UK by looking at areas among the 20 per cent most deprived on each nation’s most recent deprivation indices. The aim is to gain a better understanding of how and why these areas often remain disconnected from the economic growth which occurs within their wider city regions. The approach is based on an in-depth analysis of commuting data, along with data on residential moves at the small area level, and the development of two complementary area typologies.

The report shows that:
  • several hundred neighbourhoods across the UK are particularly poorly connected to both their wider housing and labour market areas - ‘double disconnection’
  • in some areas, local conditions have worsened over time in relation to housing and jobs and this may have a negative impact on social mobility.
  • despite some deprived areas being situated very close to large numbers of jobs, poorer residents are often not well represented in their local labour markets.
  • local context matters a lot – across the UK, not all deprived areas are the same and a wide variety of housing and labour market challenges have been identified and policy approaches need to recognise this diversity.
