Scottish Government publishes review of the community-led regeneration approach

News story posted: 04/09/2017

Scottish Government has published a report that details the findings of the independent Review of the community-led regeneration approach as delivered via the People and Communities Fund (PCF).


Since its launch in 2012, the People and Communities Fund has led the Scottish Government’s approach to community-led regeneration. Approx. £50 million of funding has been allocated to a wide range of Community Anchor Organisations to support hundreds of community-led projects. These projects provide an array of services for a variety of target groups, which include some of Scotland’s most disadvantaged and seldom heard individuals.


A distinguishing feature of the PCF is the partnership working between organisations and local residents as a means to design and deliver local projects.


The independent review involved 12 PCF funded projects and was carried out by EKOS Ltd in collaboration with Avril Blamey Associates. The review has been using a wide range of research tools in order to explore the effectiveness of the PCF approach for funded organisations and the people they work with.
