It is generally agreed that the process of economic regeneration - increasing the number of paid jobs - is the single greatest weakness in area regeneration. It is also clear that those who have been unemployed for a long time face multiple disadvantages in trying to get into the labour market.<p></p> This new study fills a gap in our knowledge about the effectiveness of schemes developed to date which actively involve employers in targeting the employment problems of disadvantaged areas.<p></p> The authors look at 12 case studies of innovative projects, drawing out general patterns and concerns for good practice. They provide a review of the literature to date and a directory of different approaches to involving employers.<p></p>
