Community green: Using local spaces to tackle inequality and improve health investigates the relationship between urban green space, inequality, ethnicity, health and wellbeing.

The largest study of its kind in England, it outlines why local green spaces matter and how they have an impact on the health and wellbeing of people living in six deprived and ethnically diverse urban areas.
