About Communities and Place
A Community-Academic Partnership

Queen’s Communities and Place, launched in 2021 by researchers from Queen's and the Market Development Association (MDA), is a community-academic partnership combining all of our perspectives, expertise and resources to find better solutions for tackling disadvantage and improving outcomes for children, young people and communities. This work focuses on a ‘place-based’ approach to create knowledge on how to close inequality gaps, tackle poverty and deprivation and empower communities to generate effective local solutions.
