Birmingham: Lozells and East Handsworth and Bordesley Green

Abstract

In the super-diverse city of Birmingham, responsibilities previously transferred to local areas were reduced or re-centralised as following major cuts in national funding to the city-council. This has led to a changed terrain of policy and funding schemes, where people draw on very local forms of support to counteract "centralised priorities".
