Abstract

Since the Blair government was elected in Britian in May 1997, there has been an explosion of area-based initiatives aimed at regenerating deprived communities and reducing poverty and social exclusion. All are partnerships that place a high value on collaboration, in contrast to the previous government's faith in competition and quasi-markets. At the same time, these new experiments in 'joined-up government' are expected to put the interests of consumers and communities before the innate conservatism of providers of services. In addition, many of the new area-based initiatives are charged with the responsibility for 'constantly reviewing, evaluating and, where necessary, adapting policies to ensure they achieve the maximum effect.
