This article will present some findings from a project funded by the Health Development Agency on the relationship between social capital, gender and health. The project involved a case study analysis of a socially deprived community in the north west of England and was carried out between November 1999 and March 2001. Findings suggested that the role of participation in voluntary organisations was crucial in the development of social capital for some community members and yet exclusionary for others.
