Summary

Place-based initiatives are programs designed and delivered with the intention of targeting a specific geographical location and particular population group in order to respond to complex social problems. Typically, they focus on areas and communities with entrenched disadvantage or deprivation. This report investigates the key factors and characteristics associated with successful outcomes with such programs, drawing on the international literature and evaluation studies of Australian government and overseas programs. More detailed case studies are included for five of the Australian programs - Communities for Children (CfC), Cape York Welfare Reform (CYWR) trial, Support for Day to Day Living in the Community (D2DL), Centrelink Place Based Services (PBS) initiative, Building Australia's Future Workforce (BAFW) package - and four international programs - Sure Start Local Programs (SSLPs) in the U.S., Employment Zones (EZs) in the U.K., The URBAN I Community Initiative (URBAN I CI) in the E.U., and New Deal for Communities (NDC) in England.
