Including young people in urban regeneration: A lot to learn?

Suzanne Fitzpatrick, Annette Hastings and Keith Kintrea

Since the early 1990s, the difficulties faced by young people have become a matter of concern for urban regeneration initiatives.

A key aspect of this emerging 'youth focus' within regeneration schemes has been the development of ways of involving young people as active participants in the process of change within their communities. Drawing on an in-depth study of 12 initiatives, this report examines the extent to which young people's needs are being met; the nature and effectiveness of various ways of involving them; and the impact of young people's participation in decision-making about urban regeneration. The report concludes that many adults still have a lot to learn about including youth in regeneration projects.
