New research shows 4 in 10 Londoners can't afford a decent standard of living


New research from Loughborough University shows that 41% of Londoners have less income than they need for what the public regard as a decent standard of living – that is one that allows them to meet their basic needs and participate in society at a minimum level. This is significantly higher than the 30% that fall below the standard in the UK as a whole. This represents 3.5 million Londoners, an increase of 400,000 since 2010/11.

The new research, funded by Trust for London, updates the first Minimum Income Standard for London report published in 2015.

Ethnic Inequalities in London


A new report published by Runnymede highlights ethnic inequalities as experienced across London as a whole, and within each of the capital’s 32 boroughs.

It measures inequality across four domains – education, employment, health and housing – and compares outcomes across time, namely between the 2001 and 2011 national censuses.

The report makes six recommendations including a call on the next Mayor to pledge  that London’s ethnic inequalities will be lower at the end of their term in 2020.
