A multi-cultural inner city community in Sheffield recently took part in a UK government strategy called the New Deal for Communities programme aimed at neighbourhood renewal and tackling social exclusion. This case study explores participation from the perspective and experience of a citizen and community activist. It examines the implications for citizens and communities of working in partnership with local government to improve services and transform a very deprived neighbourhood.
