Report looking critically at government policies on 'race', 'equality' and community cohesion, from the perspective of both housing providers and of the 'housed'. It argues that there is a gap between what government says should be done, and the realities and practicalities that apply at community level. The authors argue that practical initiatives are needed to support deprived communities and promote contact and understanding. A summary of the report may be viewed by clicking the link below.
