So now you give a monkey’s? The policy wonk’s guide to Hartlepool

This briefing illustrates the depth and breadth of the UK’s regional growth challenge by exploring some of the less-discussed issues at stake in the Hartlepool by-election, taking place on 6th May, 2021.

Data presented in this briefing covers topics including health and education, often absent from the national conversation on delivering more for ‘left behind’ communities.
