The Project Context
This scoping and mapping report is one of three outputs from a project: Explicating the role of partnerships in changing the health and well-being of local communities , one of a number of projects in a larger Higher Education Funding Council Strategic Development Fund project ( HEFCE ) entitled: Urban Regeneration: Making a Difference. This was a collaborative venture between Manchester Metropolitan University, Northumbria University, University of Salford and University of Central Lancashire. Bradford University was an affiliated partner.
This overarching project had two aims:
• To address key urban regeneration challenges in the North of England through inter-disciplinary collaboration between the partner universities and practitioner organisations, particularly in the public and voluntary sectors, and to enhance their collective impact on society
• To build a long term strategic alliance between core university partners while developing a distinctive form of knowledge transfer (KT), which is both teaching and research-driven, in order to meet the needs of organisations and professionals in business and the community
Four thematic areas were identified, which reflect important issues in the regeneration of the North of England and map on to the breadth and depth of expertise amongst the university partners and an existing firm base of collaboration with external organisations.
One university led on each theme, but every university will contribute to each theme. The themes were: Crime, Community Cohesion, Health and well-being and Enterprise. (http://regennorth.co.uk )
Health and Well-Being Theme
The North of England has some of the worst health profiles in the UK, with startling inequalities in the health experience of different population groups as defined by geographical and social group. Relative proportions of deaths from cancer, heart disease and stroke in particular, have been rising in recent years. Rates of long-standing physical and mental health are also high compared with other parts of the country.
These patterns are manifestations of the degree of well-being in the community, which is affected by a wide range of factors, including housing, poverty, transport, employment etc, covering the whole spectrum of regeneration issues. Availability for work is a natural consequence of health and well- being, with some parts of the North having amongst the highest figures of worklessness in the UK.
Whilst the public sector is the mainstream provider of support, through the National Health Service and local authorities, the non- statutory sector plays a vital complementary role and is critical to sustaining the welfare of some of the most vulnerable communities and sections of the population. This includes charities and not-for-profit organisations such as housing associations. It is a diverse and fragmented sector with an ability to be highly responsive to new ideas.
Effective cross-sector working is fundamental to the challenge of meeting the needs of vulnerable populations and working towards the inclusion of marginalised groups. Universities have a key role to play in this process, yet this form of knowledge transfer is only in its infancy, with huge potential for development.
The NHS and local authorities are heavily dependent on the higher education sector as a source of professionally qualified people and as a resource for further professional development and research and evaluation. This is complemented by practical, action-research in a number of HEIs, which is focused on the needs of communities of practice.
The Health theme identified 4 important areas which link health to regeneration:
• Health, employment and well- being, including the social and economic dimensions of regeneration;
• Ageing and disability, including the health and social care dimensions of regeneration;
• Enabling environments, including the physical and cultural dimensions of regeneration;
• Public health and primary care, including health inequalities.
In addition, a core focus across all of the projects will be on increasing the skill and knowledge level of those working in health and well-being regeneration. From (http://regennorth.co.uk)
Urban Regeneration: Making a Difference
The Project: Explicating the role of partnerships in changing the health and well-being of local communities
It is clear that concepts of partnership and collaboration underpin the successful implementation of urban regeneration initiatives. What is less clear is how partnership working impacts upon the health and well-being aspects of urban regeneration. Evaluations of outcomes are limited, and little comprehensive information is available as to the extent of any such activities across the North West and North East regions. This project sought to examine the issues in relation to these and to develop a framework for supporting the analysis of effective partnership working.
Key aims of the project
There were four main aims of the project:
1. A scoping and mapping exercise to develop a profile of community health and well-being needs and associated neighbourhood renewal activity in Salford and the northwest, and in Newcastle and the northeast
2. A revie
