Deep Dive in the 'Promise Neighbourhoods'

Author: Mat Ilic

In this report the author explores the potential of place-based neighbourhood level collective impact programmes for solving some of the most intractable challenges in children and young people's social policy. The conclusion reached is that these programmes can deliver better outcomes over the longer-term by reducing competition and duplication, although the right conditions are needed for making this happen. The call to action for facilitating this is for policymakers and independent funders.
