The Fall and Rise of Social Housing: 100 Years on 20 Estates

Rebecca Tunstall (University of York)

[pdf] Download Paper


This webinar summarises a new book that traces the changing fortunes of 20 council estates from the 1920s to date, looking at housing quality, crime and disorder, popularity, resident mix, living conditions and tenure. The book draws on 25 years of personal experience and an archive of interviews, statistics and social media data, developed with Anne Power of LSE and others. All 20 estates initially offered high quality and some had quite high rents, but by the 1970s and 1980s they had become unpopular and problematic. However, what were 20 unpopular council estates are now 19 fairly popular mixed tenure neighbourhoods. The research assesses the role of factors from estate initiatives to global trends on the falls and rises experienced by estates and their residents, and points out some implications for policy.

Social Policies and Distributional Outcomes (SPDO) event - Health and Social Care: Policies, Spending and Outcomes 2015 - pre-COVID 2020

Polly Vizard (CASE) , joint with Tania Burchardt, Polina Obolenskaya

Polly Vizard, Tania Burchardt and Polina Obolenskaya will present findings from forthcoming papers on health and social care as part of the Social Policies and Distributional Outcomes research programme funded by Nuffield Foundation. The papers use the SPDO framework to evaluate developments between 2015 to the present, reporting on goals, policies, resources, inputs/outputs and outcomes, comparing the state of health and adult social care provision and policy at the end of the Coalition government period with the present. Policies of the Cameron, May and Johnson administrations are reviewed, together with an analysis of trends in public and private spending, and in service provision. Outcomes are assessed through a range of indicators. For health, these include measures of quality, trends in mortality, good health and non-medical determinants. For adult social care, these include measures of quality and safeguarding, healthcare integration and pressure on unpaid carers. The final sections of the papers identify challenges for the future and reflect on the barriers to effective policy making and implementation in these areas. This is an extended seminar, please note the start time of 4 pm. The first presentation will focus on health, and the second on adult social care. As usual, the seminar will be followed by an informal reception at 6 pm.
