Abstract

This document reports the findings of research on approaches to evaluation in
community regeneration. It was conducted by the Employment Research
Institute (ERI) at Napier University on behalf of Communities Scotland.
The Scottish Executive and Communities Scotland are committed to ‘Closing
the Opportunity Gap’ (CtOG), the Executive’s main strategy for tackling poverty
and disadvantage in Scotland, by seeking to: prevent individuals or families
from falling into poverty; provide routes out of poverty for individuals and
families; and sustain individuals and families in a lifestyle free from poverty.
Over the period 2005-08, the Community Regeneration Fund (CRF) provides a
key mechanism for Scotland’s 32 Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) to
develop services promoting the regeneration of the most deprived
neighbourhoods, in line with the Closing the Opportunity Gap (CtOG) objective
of “regenerating the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods, so that people living
there can take advantage of job opportunities and improve their quality of life”.
