Signposting the evidence base for Neighbourhood Renewal

The ODPM Neighbourhood Renewal Unit commissioned OCSI to identify and signpost datasets and resources to help local partnerships target and monitor local programmes. Alongside nationally-published sources such as those on Neighbourhood Statistics, OCSI are also highlighting relevant datasets held by local partner agencies. The data and resources will help people identify:

  • What evidence supports our funding proposals?
  • Are our priorities right – is our strategy helping the most deprived areas and groups?
  • Where can I find information to help me target specific programmes at the right areas and communities?
  • Are our priority neighbourhood areas closing the gap?
  • How can we evaluate whether our programmes are working?
  • What communities do we need to work harder to reach?
