The studies also explore the impact of, and level of participation in, local regeneration initiatives. Other reports in the series look at East London, Nottingham and Teesside. A separate report offers a comprehensive overview of all four projects. This particular study explores the perceptions, expectations and aspirations of residents on two estates in Liverpool.
In addition to themes common to all four projects, it explores how women, young people and older people perceive their communities and how a 'bad reputation' can affect an area.
