Initial evaluation of the JRF poverty and ethnicity programme
Evaluation looking at JRF’s Poverty and Ethnicity programme to date, exploring how the programme can maximise its influence and impact.
The programme aims to increase understanding of the relationships between poverty and ethnicity and use this to develop more effective ways of tackling poverty across ethnic groups.
Phase 1 of the research programme, which examines the key themes of education, work, caring, social networks and the role of places and inequality within ethnic groups, is now complete. Findings from phase two, which examines new sources of qualitative data, will be launched in spring next year.
The evaluation was undertaken by Andy Hirst and Sini Rinne of Cambridge Policy Consultants.
