This project investigates why and how people in rural areas experience (and negotiate) poverty and social exclusion, with a focus on financial hardship and vulnerability. It examines the roles of societal processes, individual circumstances and various sources of support (markets; state; voluntary and community organisations; family and friends). Interviews were conducted with individuals experiencing financial vulnerability and representatives of organisations offering support in three case study areas between October 2019 and September 2020, so both before and during the Covid-19 pandemic. The study areas were Harris, East Perthshire and Northumberland.
