This report documents one of three themed studies undertaken as part of the national evaluation (2004-2008) of the Stronger Families and Communities Strategy (SFCS) 2004-2009. The study explores how Communities for Children, Invest to Grow and Local Answers projects and activities have engaged clients who may be considered hard-to-reach.
Using interviews with key informants in a sample of projects, the report explores the key research questions:
- How, and how effectively, have services receiving Local Answers, Invest to Grow, and Communities for Children funding engaged hard-to-reach populations? - What challenges have they faced? - What would help improve reach and engagement?
