Guest blogger Pauline Hinchion, Director of Scottish Communities Finance, as part of What Works Scotland community sector inquiry work, returns to the Christie Commission’s report to consider the fundamental challenge of empowering low income communities and the potential for asset-based approaches to work alongside public services.
This research report examines area-based approaches to economic regeneration in Scotland, including evidence from three case studies focused on town centre regeneration, community-led regeneration and physical regeneration. The report identifies commonalities across the case studies and presents main messages for future economic regeneration initiatives.
This event launches a new What Works Scotland report asking what works in place-based economic regeneration in Scotland, written by colleagues from Training and Employment Research Unit (TERU) and What Works Scotland at the University of Glasgow. It will also review three case studies of contemporary regeneration.
