This research was commissioned in Summer 2019 by SLN:COP to develop a new strand of work –  focusing on ‘working class’ in Sussex, the research undertaken was to build a picture of what working class means in Sussex, and what the specific challenges are for this targeted group of young people.

This research was undertaken by the Institute of Employment Studies (IES) and draws on a range of data sets to build a profile of young working class in Sussex, predominantly focusing on the target ward areas that SLN:COP operate in.
