The research looked at why people were concentrated into particular deprived parts of the city, and whether and how different ethnic groups experience greater disadvantage as a result of living in those places. The study used historical data on migration, housing and economic restructuring to understand the current position of neighbourhoods. Interviews were  carried out with young adults in two case-study areas, Nechells and Sparkbrook, to understand the effect of locality on growing up and daily life. The Trust extended the work into 2009 by commissioning two additional case studies on predominantly white deprived neighbourhoods in Birmingham.
