Abstract

Researchers from the urban regeneration evaluation team at the Centre for Institutional Studies, University of East London conducted an assessment of the progress of the Haringey Children’s Fund (HCF) participation project between January and September 2006.
This report documents the team’s findings which show that since 2003 the participation project has made significant progress but at the time of the research it appears that the project is a victim of its own success. The demand for the services of the officers has grown and at the same time their remit has expanded to include work beyond HCF projects. The report recommends that it remains necessary to continue to persuade policy makers and practitioners of the value of participation, and to incorporate the participation by young people into their policy making and into their everyday practices in order to achieve a more accountable service able to meet the needs of service users.
