West Somerset improvement chances are slim, says report

West Somerset has been named as the worst place in the UK for disadvantaged children to progress, in a new government report.The Forest of Dean is also in the 25 poorest-performing authorities for improvement prospects.

The State of the Nation study analyses social mobility in Great Britain: the experts use 16 indicators for "every major life stage" and measure them across all local authorities.

Rural and coastal areas have now replaced inner cities as having the poorest social mobility.

It means that someone from a poor social background in West Somerset and the Forest of Dean will find it extremely difficult to improve their economic chances.

The Cotswolds - despite being a generally affluent area - is "amongst the worst for offering good education, employment opportunities and affordable housing to their most disadvantaged residents."

The analysis in this report substantiates the sense of political alienation and social resentment that so many parts of Britain feel... Overcoming the divisions that exist in Britain requires far more ambition and far bigger scale. A less divided Britain will require a more redistributive approach to spreading education, employment and housing prospects across our country.”
