An examination of why there are links between ill health and poverty, and why the consequences appear to be worse among minority ethnic groups. Chronic ill health is now recognised as a major public health and social welfare issue, with significant new policy initiatives in recent months. This report presents findings from a detailed investigation into the experiences of individuals living with long-term ill health and their families. New qualitative material is combined with secondary analyses of national datasets to examine the ways in which long-term ill health has an impact on different aspects of poverty. The report explores the links between long-term ill health and three interrelated areas: employment, welfare benefits, and social participation and social support; covers an ethnically diverse sample in order to explore the relevance of ethnicity for the experience and consequences of long-term ill health; and identifies ways in which current UK health and social policy might better serve the needs of people with long-term health conditions.
