Twenty-five years on twenty estates: Turning the Tide?

The Policy Press has just published a new report in association with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation: Twenty-five years on twenty estates, by Rebecca Tunstall and Alice Coulter.

The report covers developments in 20 less popular and more problematic English council estates, based on four waves of research since 1980. It presents unique evidence of the impact of 25 years of social change and policy from Thatcher to Blair, a period in which the number of British council homes has halved, and social inequality and the standard of public services have become key political issues.
