This chapter takes on the problematic issue of diverse communities within neighbourhood governance. It recognises the potential of neighbourhood governance to respond to diversity but rejects easy assumptions about its capacity to do so. It notes and challenges the tendency to see equalities questions as answered through the representation of particular groups and suggest that homogenising assumptions about groups lead to a failure to understand neighbourhood dynamics and recognise complex, multiple identities.

Keywords:   diverse communities, neighbourhood governance, equalities, neighbourhood dynamics, multiple identities
