Show Summary Details


This chapter uses the recent experience of one of the authors, who developed community-level engagement in an urban health-regeneration programme, as the basis for its discussion. The first section discusses how individual awareness regarding needs can grow to the point where people are able to form groups that are focused on identifying practical tasks and operational issues which can help improve their situation. It describes this process and its respective parts, and also explores how the evidence bases developed in the first research phase are moved to the second phase.

Keywords: community-level engagement; urban health regeneration; individual awareness; needs; practical tasks; operational issues
