This report summarises the findings of a research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) aiming to understand how the loss of employment at Longbridge has affected the well-being of former MG Rover workers and their families, plus the impact on neighbourhoods. The study examines the processes of adjustment and change, loss of job and subsequent work trajectories, the possible loss of income, health impacts, and the potential changes of address, school and travel to work patterns affecting ex-workers and their families, as well as the wider 'ripple effect' for their neighbourhoods.
