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”.
