Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland and Policy Scotland


Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland  is an initiative that brings together people, resources and organisations in a neighbourhood area, so that all of those things can work together towards better lives for the children living there. Policy Scotland is a research unit at the University of Glasgow whose mission is to generate and provide a space for local, national and international public policy debates. Researchers from both groups will be releasing a series of articles during Challenge Poverty Week at varying levels for a host of different audiences. The articles that will be broad and help explain what they mean by poverty generally, before drilling down further with a few technical ones that go into some of the research in greater focus. For example, a few ideas for titles they are hoping to produce include:

  • ‘What do we mean by poverty?’
  • ‘How do we talk to young people about poverty?’
  • ‘The challenges of poverty in Scotland’s rural areas’
  • ‘The role of public services in tackling poverty’
  • ‘How poverty bounds agency’

The articles will be published on the following websites:
