Following the publication of our first interim report focused on PF, engagement and relationship building (Crabbe, 2005) in this second case study report we turn our attention to the supply lines, channels of communication, management structures, partnerships and cultures of operation which both enable and inhibit the achievement of PF programme objectives. As with our first report we utilise the PF strategy document Cul de sacs and gateways (Home Office, 2003) as a benchmark.
More specifically we focus on the extent and ways in which projects and staff have understood the approach articulated in Culdesacs and gateways in terms of:
- the characteristics of appropriate lead agencies
- the nature of strong effective local partnerships
- the skills and training needs of the PF workforce
- the need for a central monitoring and evaluation framework
Whilst this summary is intended to highlight the key themes emerging from the research and the policy and practice issues associated with them, it is from the detail of the main report that a full appreciation of the issues considered emerges and from which we have drawn the conclusions presented here.
Editor's comments - [ ( Neil Watson (Positive Futures) ) ..... This report focuses on the ways in which projects organise themselves in order to deliver the programme and highlights workforce issues, agency capacity, partnerships, communication and monitoring and evaluation.
This report builds on 'Getting to Know You', the first case study research published last year and is intended to stimulate debate, challenge practitioners and partner agencies to think about the work they do and suggest how it might be done more effectively. ] Reference this?Cryer, J.
