Reaching Out: Progress on Social Exclusion

The Prime Minister, at his monthly press conference in February 2007, set out progress on tackling social exclusion six months after the publication of the cross-Government Social Exclusion Action Plan.

In a presentation, the Prime Minister showed the Government's success in improving lives for the most disadvantaged groups but also set out the challenges in reaching those hard to reach groups, caught in a cycle of disadvantage.
