This report from New Local and Joseph Rowntree Foundation explores how services, charities and policymakers can work with people affected by poverty to ‘design out’ hardship in local areas.

this report sets out a framework to support local areas to make progress towards designing out the most severe forms of hardship. This framework is based around six key areas of action, in three groups:

  • building a strategy and coalition
  • shifting power and redesigning the system
  • creating the conditions for sustainable local change
