New research from the New Local and Joseph Rowntree Foundation captures how local public services, voluntary and community organisations, community groups and other partners are working tenaciously and creatively to both mitigate the impact of poverty and attempt to fundamentally tackle the root causes of it.


The report highlights that the range of activity happening at a local level can be captured in four key areas:


  1. Community-led activity, community participation and efforts to build capacity in communities
  2. The network of local support and services
  3. The convening of local partners
  4. Data and insight


Building on this existing activity, this report sets out a framework to support local areas to make progress towards designing out the most severe forms of hardship.
