Work in this area is wide-ranging, covering poverty, housing (and homelessness), health (including mental health), social care, employment, capacity building and the arts. A major focus of research activity is ethnic inequalities in access, experiences and outcomes of using public services. Other strands of research are the negotiation of identity in a multicultural society with shifting governance arrangements. While much of the work has centred on ethnicity, research in this area has also examined inequalities related to gender and disability.
