Description
Gender is an important but often neglected aspect of regeneration work in the UK. This guide aims to develop the capacity of community-based groups in regeneration areas by providing the tools and techniques for them to hold decision-makers to account. It follows the examples of three local women's groups who worked to ensure that they were involved in local regeneration initiatives. Throughout the guide, there are illustrated practical examples of tools that were used with the ReGender pilot groups.
