Show Summary Details

Preview

The financial crisis has had an impact on communities, and particularly on vulnerable groups. How can the most vulnerable groups be protected, and what support can be given? This chapter examines the issues for vulnerable people and, more generally, for community cohesion. It uses a range of different examples to demonstrate the need for support, and the response from public agencies to protect community members. As a potential multiplier of social exclusion and inequality, the chapter examines the financial crisis for its effect on those already seen to be vulnerable.

Keywords: vulnerable groups; community cohesion; social exclusion; social inequality; financial crisis
