Our latest research - Poverty and Prosperity in K+C: A Deepening Divide

This new report highlights some significant increases in the borough’s inequalities, with evidence that poverty and deprivation has deepened amongst residents on low or no income, that those residents are dying younger, and waiting longer to access appropriate and timely support.
