The Working Neighbourhoods Fund scoping study

The Working Neighbourhoods Fund was established by Communities and Local Government and the Department for Work and Pensions in 2008. Replacing the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund, it directs funding to 65 local authorities to help them tackle concentrations of worklessness. A team from the Department of Land Economy, under the direction of Prof Peter Tyler and including several members of CCHPR, is leading the scoping study and interim evaluation of the Working Neighbourhoods Fund. CCHPR provided expertise for an online survey and qualitative fieldwork with districts in receipt of funding. Other elements of the whole research programme were carried out by Cambridge Econometrics and EDuce consultancy.
