Nutrition in marginalisedgroups
Rosalind Fallaize and Julie Lovegrove
The nutritional intake of the homeless and other marginalisedgroups,
including those surviving on limited income, is inadequate. This
chapter gives an overview of key nutritional issues and contemporary
advances in human nutrition in marginalisedgroups and provides
insight from primary research into the nutritional needs of vulnerable
groups. There is evidence to suggest that the dietary choices of
communities on low income, including the homeless and families
Selective inclusion: asylum seekers and
Establishing the Social Exclusion Unit (SEU) in 1997 as part of the Cabinet
Office was an early initiative of the Labour government. The brief of the SEU
fell into two parts: neighbourhood renewal (considered in Chapter Six of this
volume); and countering the exclusion of marginalisedgroups (considered in
this chapter). Up to early 2004, the groups about whom the SEU has produced
reports have been as follows:
• pupils excluded from school or
to support the retention and progression of women. For now, we note how the pressure of historical and present-day barriers for women and marginalisedgroups can lead to the feeling that they are being crushed by the weight of what has gone before (see Figure 4.1 ). In the chemical sciences, the lack of retention and progression for women and all those with protected equality and diversity (EDI) characteristics is pronounced. 27 This is highlighted by data – for example in the UK in physics the percentage of women choosing to study at A-level at school or college

Making connections: supporting
new forms of engagement by
Karen Postle and Peter Beresford
This chapter explores the implications of two competing discourses
on participation: the consumerist discourse and one concerned with
empowerment, democratisation and liberation. These discourses are
situated in the context of their relationship to welfare provision and
changes therein since the 1980s. Drawing on recent research, the
chapter connects participation in political activity with the
development of movements of people

as examples of marginalgroups in the healthcare division of labour. typically,
in the past, social scientific studies of professionalisation have focused on fully
fledged professions, at the expense of occupational groups with a less developed
professional structure – not least in the area of
The people most impacted by criminal justice policies and practices are seldom included in the decision-making processes that affect their lives.
Building on the ‘nothing about us without us’ social movement, this edited volume advocates an inclusive approach to criminology that gives voice to historically marginalized, silenced, and ignored groups.
Incorporating the experiences of service users, academics, and state and grassroots practitioners, this volume considers how researchers might bridge the gap between theory and lived experience. It furthers criminological scholarship by capturing the voices of marginalized groups and exploring how criminology can authentically incorporate these voices.
Driven by consumers’ desire for slow and local food, craft breweries, traditional butchers, cheese makers and bakeries have been popping up across the US in the last twenty years. Typically urban and staffed predominantly by white middle class men, these industries are perceived as a departure from tradition and mainstream lifestyles. But this image obscures the diverse communities that have supported artisanal foods for centuries.
Using the oral histories of over 100 people, this book brings to light the voices, experiences, and histories of marginalized groups who keep Southern foodways alive. The larger than life stories of these individuals reveal the complex reality behind the movement and show how they are the backbone of the so-called "new explosion" of craft food.
Nuanced interconnections of poverty and educational attainment around the UK are surveyed in this unique analysis.
Across the four jurisdictions of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, experts consider the impact of curriculum reforms and devolved policy making on the lives of children and young people in poverty. They investigate differences in educational ideologies and structures, and question whether they help or hinder schools seeking to support disadvantaged and marginalised groups.
For academics and students engaged in education and social justice, this is a vital exploration of poverty’s profound effects on inequalities in educational attainment and the opportunities to improve school responses.
