Abstract

Barking and Dagenham Children’s Fund (BDCF) is a second wave partnership working with young people and their communities to alleviate poverty and to provide opportunities for young people aged 5 to 13 years to flourish and develop. BDCF was allocated £1.6 million and an additional £250,000 for crime related work to spend between 2002 and 2004. In a short space of time a total of 33 projects were commissioned under the four themes of Education, Health and Inequality, Disabled Children and Crime to cover the diverse needs of 5-13 year olds in the community. The University of East London was commissioned to conduct an evaluation of the
Children’s Fund. This report represents the first of two evaluation phases and looks
at the implementation of the programme.
