A tale of two cities: Community perspectives and narratives on inequality, struggle, hope and change

The Young Foundation, November 2017

This report presents community perspectives on what inequality is, and how it is experienced, struggled with and resisted. This research is based on three communities in a Northern city it aims to describe the lived experience of inequality to identify the boundaries of different types of power and decision making; how power feels to those who do not control budgets, spending and decide on services. Understanding the complexity of communities’ experience helps those who do control levers of power, finance and influence to develop better strategies to tackle inequality. Applying this understanding begins to identify opportunities for mutual and collaborative approaches which actively challenge inequalities instead of reproducing them.
