Joseph Rowntree Foundation review on poverty and ethnicity

In May 2011, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation published ‘A review of evidence on the links between poverty and ethnicity’.

The review summarises the results of scoping work on how poverty and ethnicity interact, prior to the launch of a major new programme of work on the subject.

The research focused on:

  • the three main areas affecting experiences of poverty – education, work and unpaid caring;
  • how social networks and place shape experiences and opportunities;
  • inequality within ethnic minority groups.

It identifies key gaps where greater understanding could support more effective action on poverty across different ethnicities. The research also included qualitative research with a number of communities to understand their day-to-day experiences.
