Lincolnshire Wellbeing Service

Lincolnshire Wellbeing Service

We’ve published our report on the Lincolnshire Wellbeing Service.

On behalf of the Lincs Independent Living Partnership (LILP) we undertook an evaluation of the Service. The findings were used by LILP to chart progress and plan for future activities.


Coastal Community Team Economic Plan

Coastal Community Team Economic PlanWe helped communities, businesses and stakeholders come together to produce a plan for their coastal area.

The plan sets out what needs to be done to tackle some of the challenges facing the local area –  capturing the untapped potential of established projects as well as new ideas.

The North of the Tyne FLAG

North of Tyne FisheriesWe have produced a  Strategy for a Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG). .

The strategy covers 14 settlements from North Shields to Berwick-upon-Tweed; covering a distance of 65 miles, a population of 88,000 and employing over 150 people directly in the fishing industry. In 2016, the FLAG was awarded £800,000 from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) to support fishermen and associated businesses.

Fisheries Community Animateur

Fisheries Community AnimateurWe produced a report on the Fisheries Animateur in Cornwall.

The Animateur works with coastal communities across Cornwall to develop projects that help sustain the fishing industry. This report considers the social value from the project development work undertaken to support applicants. This analysis shows a return of £5.45 for every £1.00 invested in the programme.

Cornwall & Isles of Scilly FLAG

Cornwall & Isles of Scilly FisheriesWe produced a strategy for a Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) covering Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly.

The strategy includes a socio-economic analysis of the coastal areas, an overview of the community consultation that took place, a SWOT analysis, and some indicative programme activity. In July 2011, the FLAG was awarded £1,139,000 from the European Fisheries Fund.

Day of the Region

Day of the region - full jpgThe Day of the Region initiative in Dumfries and Galloway has been running since 2011. It is a community capacity building programme that brings together a range of groups and businesses on an annual basis.

We undertook an evaluation of the initiative – looking at the process and impact of programme activities and measuring the difference it made to participants.


East Leicestershire LEADER

East Leicestershire LEADERWe produced a strategy for Leicestershire County Council and a Local Action Group to deliver LEADER.

Approximately £1.5 million is available to provide grants to small businesses and communities in East Leicestershire between 2015 and 2020.


Yorkshire Dales LEADER

Yorkshire Dales LEADERWe produced a evaluation of the Yorkshire Dales LEADER Programme.

The report follows a logic path through the evidence – considering the research that was undertaken to produce the Local Development Strategy through to the outputs, outcomes and strategic added value delivered by the programme.

Fit for the Future?

Fit for the futureWe produced a report for East Midlands Council to help Local Authorities improve their economic development practice and learn from each other.

This study highlights how the recession and economic downturn placed financial pressure on Councils, and led communities and businesses to place increasing demands on services. At the same time, it draws attention to the huge range and variety of activities undertaken by Councils to respond.

Northern Lincolnshire LEADER

Northern Lincolnshire LEADERWe prepared a strategy for the Local Action Group in Northern Lincolnshire.

The strategy provides an overview of the LAG area and its distinctiveness as well as some priorities for local action. The programme is open for applications until 2020 and has £2.1 million available for projects that will create jobs and economic growth.
