Challenges Facing English Towns Roundtable Series

Though resources have been ploughed into cities as part of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ agenda, Demos have found that three in five English towns are falling behind their neighbouring cities on a new index of socio-economic performance. Demos is partnering with 4Children to explore how this affects the lives of children and families.

In the current phase of our research, we are hosting roundtables that bring together key local stakeholders under the Chatham House rule to build an in-depth picture of the specific social and economic challenges in the local areas of Barnsley, Dewsbury and Loughborough

Roundtables will be taking place in May and June 2016.
