Firstly, this is a top piece of work by JRF.  Well researched and recommending clear, achievable changes.  I hope government listens.

But I will also return to my theme about the 'place' role of local government.  If JRF are right, and more people are falling through cracks in public services, the local state is uniquely placed to intervene.

We need a new way of thinking about how a place can tackle destitution as systemic problem.  This brings together all the capacities in a place with the lived experience of the people affected.

We might wait in vain for government to change their policies - and miss the chance to do something ourselves
