October 2010 INTO AND OUT OF WORK

This working paper explores the relationship between work, place and identity in six low-income neighbourhoods across Britain. The purpose of the research is threefold. Firstly, it seeks to understand perceptions of the landscape of economic opportunity facing individuals living in particular places. Secondly, it examines the significance of work within individual lives and the impact it has upon financial and emotional well-being. Thirdly, it considers the extent to which individuals make comparative assessments of working status with other residents and the way in which this serves to produce social distinctions within neighbourhoods.
