This report synthesises the findings from a wide range of social research undertaken on the District of Bradford, primarily between 1995 and 2005.

The researchers reviewed almost 200 pieces of work. The key results are summarised under thematic headings:

  • The social, economic and institutional context
  • Community cohesion
  • Housing, neighbourhoods and regeneration
  • Business and enterprise
  • Health, disability and social care
  • Children and young people
  • Education, skills and the labour market
  • Crime and community safety

It also identifies a future research agenda. The main purpose of the review was to provide the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and local organisations in Bradford with a firm basis upon which to build future work in the District.
