A new London’s Poverty Profile report has been published.
The report updates a wide range of indicators on housing, work, health and income poverty to assess what has changed since the first report in 2009. The report includes a new section on services including GPs, primary schools and transport.
The report was launched at an event at the Bishopsgate Institute, chaired by Channel 4 Social Affairs editor, Jackie Long. The event included a debate between Nick Pearce, Director of IPPR (the Institute for Public Policy Research) and Neil O’Brien, Director of Policy Exchange on the recent disturbances which took place in London and other parts of the country.
