Fairer Scotland Fund Case Studies

These case studies are taken from research conducted by ODS Consulting into lessons learned from the Fairer Scotland Fund (FSF). In each of the case study areas a range of those involved in the FSF were interviewed, reflecting the local arrangements and priorities for the FSF. Respondents identified the issues that were important in their area. In some cases, this reflected the history of tackling concentrated disadvantage and the local circumstances. However, there were some common themes across all areas.
