Social Market Foundation briefing on devolution and poverty

The Social Market Foundation published a briefing on devolution and poverty in June 2016.

According to the briefing greater devolution in England has been largely framed around growth, with much less debate about the impact on poverty. The briefing summarises the key questions and considerations facing policymakers and draws out key themes, such as the rationale for localisation, the barriers to tackling poverty and implications for when and how to devolve.

The SMF has also written a blog on the report for the Barrow Cadbury Trust website.
