The Community Regeneration and Tackling Poverty Learning Network
worked together with the Improvement Service to conduct a
collaborative pilot project to help embed an outcomes approach to
community regeneration and tackling poverty within local areas.
Applications were received from 14 community planning
partnership sub groups from across the country with a focus on anti
poverty and regeneration. 5 were selected depending on their need
and their commitment to the pilot as well as ensuring the best mix
of partnership maturity, location and size.
The project provided hands on, practical support to help the
partnerships embrace outcomes over a period of 15 months. The
project manager worked with each of the areas to establish their
key needs and requirements and developed a tailored work plan.The
ultimate aim was that the support provided to the local
partnerships will help them achieve the delivery of more effective
and sustainable outcomes within their local communities in the area
of regeneration / tackling poverty.
The five CPPs and key areas of activity are below.
