Community-Led Approaches to Reducing Poverty


The Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation have published a review of ‘the impact of community-led approaches to tackling poverty, focused at the neighbourhood level’. This is the first report to provide a substantial insight into the potential of community-led activities being used as poverty intervention measures more widely, specifically in low income communities. The researchers found a lack of evidence which directly considers the impacts on poverty of these activities, and so they largely theorised on the potential benefits. SURF has provided a substantial summary of the findings.
