Poverty Strategy Misses Poorest

Scotland's poorest people don't always get the benefit of anti-poverty policies.

New research out today shows those who suffer from high levels of poverty, often miss out on help because they don't always stay in the poorest areas.

The report found that some groups, such as new migrants, who may face financial and social exclusion due to racism, often live in poor quality housing, but not necessarily in the most economically deprived areas.

 It also found that where groups do live in the poorest areas, they do not always benefit from place-based policies because the reasons for their poverty may differ from those around them, for example a disabled person may be excluded from the labour market because of they need specific support with transport.
