This study was commissioned and funded by Dumfries and Galloway Council to provide evidence and analysis of the nature and patterns of poverty and deprivation across the region. It complements the Dumfries and Galloway Regional Economic Strategy Baseline Study and Regional Economic Profile published in 2014 and the four Area Profiles published earlier in the year (2015), and has been used to inform the development of the region’s first Anti-Poverty Strategy. It is consistent with best practice in policy development by providing quantitative data, drawn from national and local sources and qualitative information, and qualitative data drawn from Discussion Groups with people experiencing poverty across the region. The findings will be used to inform Elected Members, officers and partners throughout the implementation of the Anti-Strategy over the coming five years and also in its final evaluation.
