The impact of austerity on Bradford
Or Poverty, Inequality and Mental Well-being: The Double-Whammy effect. This public lecture by Kate Karban examines the impact of the government's austerity programme on poverty in Bradford with reference to wider issues of health inequalities, particularly mental wellbeing.
A key question will concern the extent to which current policies and responses reinscribe disadvantage creating a ‘double whammy’ effect.
