Social Exclusion—New Language, New Challenges for Local Authorities
National policy initiatives such as the establishment of the Social Exclusion Unit and the new government strategy, ‘Opportunity for All’, have provided a new stimulus to local authorities to develop more effective local strategies to promote social inclusion. The major features of current local initiatives are described, and the leadership and management challenges presented to local authorities are discussed. However, for local government to tackle social exclusion and poverty more effectively it is also necessary for the structural and regional dimensions of social exclusion to be taken more into account by central government, and for a new equilibrium between central, regional and local initiative to be achieved.
