Social Policy in a Cold Climate report on ‘Hard Times: New Directions?’

An interim report Hard Times: New Directions? by Amanda Fitzgerald and Ruth Lupton was published in January 2014 as part of the Social Policy in a Cold Climate Programme at the LSE Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion.

It reports on what has been happening with local government spending. Local authorities say they have managed to protect frontline services from the cuts…so far.
