Expenditure Patterns Post-Welfare Reform in the UK: Are low-income families starting to catch up? This paper finds post 1998 UK welfare reforms children in low-income families were catching up in terms of their families’ spending in the overall areas of housing and utilities, food, clothing, leisure goods and services, and motoring and travel. The evidence also suggests reduced spending on alcohol and tobacco. Paul Gregg, Jane Waldfogel and Elizabeth Washbrook May 2005

Schools in Disadvantaged Areas: Recognising context and raising quality This paper looks at the quality problem, exploring the relationships between disadvantaged contexts, what schools do, and the quality of schooling that they provide. The findings suggest that disadvantaged contexts impact on the organisation and processes of schools and that these effects differ significantly from one area to another, in ways that are not reflected by the usual indicators of disadvantage.
