Poverty research broadcast on ITV
The Poverty and Social Exclusion (PSE) Project is is the largest and most authoritative study of poverty and deprivation ever conducted in the UK. Within the research team, Glen Bramley and Kirsten Besemer are particularly responsible for analysing results which relate to local services, housing, neighbourhood, education and financial inclusion, and the way poverty in Scotland differs from the rest of the UK.
The first results from this study were broadcast on ITV at 7.30pm on Thursday, March 28th in a special ‘Tonight’ programme on ‘Breadline Britain’. The first report from the PSE UK team ‘The impoverishment of the UK’ is now available on the PSE website.
Following the ITV programme, we will regularly report on our ongoing analysis on this blog and on the PSE website. We will be looking at the public’s perceptions of necessities, revealing the extent of deprivation and social exclusion today and highlighting trends that have become apparent over the last ten years. We’ll also be analysing the outcomes of the research in relation to policy implications
