How Big Local areas engage with new and transient groups and communities

 

 

Presenting the findings of research carried out in three different types of places- central urban, coastal and post-industrial- this report explores how Big Local areas engage with new and transient groups and communities. The communities include people who are recent immigrants, are transient due to housing tenure or those who are passing through because they are following seasonal work or are part of a gypsy or traveller community. It describes how choices around values, approaches and structures can make a difference to successful engagement by Big Local areas.
