Demonstrating the Links (2006 - 2008)

Client: Scottish Natural Heritage

A two-year programme of community-led action research undertaken in partnership with greenspace scotland and funded by Scottish Natural Heritage. Working with eight community groups, it supported the design and delivery of local research projects that investigated the impacts of greenspaces on community quality of life.  Unlike many research programmes where communities are the subject of research and the research is in effect ‘done to them', this programme provided community groups with a mentor who worked with them to support the design and delivery of their research projects.
