Hard Edges: Mapping Severe and Multiple Disadvantage

Lankelly Chase Foundation, April 2015

This study seeks to provide a statistical profile of a key manifestation of ‘severe and multiple disadvantage’ (SMD) in England.  The report aims to address the fragmentation of data concerning people with complex and multiple disadvantage and so create the clearest quantitative picture possible of the reality of people’s lives. By establishing the extent to which different systems that people come into contact with overlap, the report aims to stimulate thought and action on whether single issue systems and services are any longer the most effective response.
