Making the Links – Poverty, Ethnicity and Social Networks
Reporting July 2013
This project is part of a major Joseph Rowntree Foundation programme focussing on the links between poverty and ethnicity across the UK. It explores the potential of social networks to tackle poverty within Black and minority ethnic communities in the UK.
This research aims to develop a better understanding of how networks within and between diverse communities support or hinder people’s capacity and opportunities to cope with and move away from poverty. It will explore how networks are maintained, accessed, and used to gain employment or sustain businesses.
The research is being undertaken with diverse communities in Birmingham, Liverpool and Cumbria. The research team is led by Angus McCabe, Third Sector Research Centre.
