Abstract

How can city stakeholders connect people in poverty with jobs? Poverty is an issue for people both in and out of work. This report reviews UK and international evidence on local approaches to linking people who are out of work to jobs and those in work to better jobs. As cities gain more powers and strategic discretion to address local issues it is important to build on existing evidence of 'what works' in connecting people in poverty with jobs.
