Updating the ‘Investing in Communities’ evidence base for Bedfordshire and Luton

The 10-year regional ‘Investing in Communities’ (IiC) programme encourages a holistic partnership approach to tackling regeneration and renewal in deprived communities in the East of England. The Bedfordshire and Luton Economic Development Partnership (BLEDP) commissioned OCSI to update the evidence base for their delivery of the IiC programme.

This project focused on IiC’s three key themes of employment, skills and enterprise, as well as cross-cutting issues of communities and access to services.  The work carried out by OCSI has provided a comprehensive evidence of ‘need’ for communities in Bedfordshire and Luton, updating and further developing previous work by OCSI.
