Places matter, and as more than the administrative partitioning of space to implement policy: they are where abstract strategy is concretised. Places are also where knowledge is concretised and where it is possible to learn about ‘what works’. Outside the bounds of place and time, knowledge is abstract and at best an averaging across many local contexts. While this can reveal common patterns and relationships, it risks losing knowledge of what actually happens and works in specific places. It is still possible to arrive at general understandings of causes and outcomes, and these may point to underlying structures and processes that operate over large spatial and temporal scales, but their effects can be different from person to person, place to place and time to time.

For instance, people who are less mobile are likely to spend more time in their home area and be more dependent on local services.
