Protected Characteristics and Poverty Consultation

Fife Centre for Equalities has commissioned Fife Council’s Research Team to carry out a project to examine how protected characteristics can affect people's experience of poverty and their capacity to access anti-poverty services or initiatives put in place.  Part of this research project includes gathering information from organisations throughout Fife regarding information they may have collated on this subject, through their work with service users.

“While some of the issues that leave people vulnerable to poverty – and some of the solutions – lie at an individual and family level, many of them are part of far wider forces and relate to inequalities within society and the economy as a whole.” (John Hills, Director of the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion at the London School of Economics).
