Rose Regeneration evaluates activities undertaken by public bodies, including local authorities and central Government. We provide unique perspectives on how well public services are being delivered and how they could be improved, from the point of view of those receiving and using those services.
Examples of recent projects include:
Review of the Leader Approach for delivering the Rural Development
Programme for England (RDPE)
Leader is a European funding programme for rural communities. Rose Regeneration and the Universities of Lincoln and London undertook a national review of the current programme and the extent to which it demonstrated value-for-money; the economic, social and environmental benefits it had delivered; how delivery processes could be improved; and what the programme might look like from 2014.
Evaluating the impact of ‘FarmCornwall’
FarmCornwall provides information and advice on farm business development, finance, grant applications, training, diversification and benefit & welfare support. Rose Regeneration assessed the contribution of the initiative to date and made recommendations to shape its future.
Other projects include:
An Evaluation of a 12-month livestock training programme for young people on behalf of Lantra (the Sector Skills Council for land-based and environmental industries).
A study into the contribution made by Lincoln Cathedral to the economy of the East Midlands.
A Toolkit setting out how 44 Local Authorities in the East Midlands responded to the impact of the recession on communities and businesses (for East Midlands Councils).
