My PhD, ‘Securing the Future: community engagement for residential security and economic prosperity in Merthyr Tydfil’, explores the way in which community engagement can be fostered as a social benefit in building and strengthening partnership working in the housing sector. It takes as its focus, social and political agendas and developments affecting and impacting housing association tenants. The research is underpinned by social and urban Geography, exploring models, methods and practices of community engagement and ultimately examining effective governance and regenerative efforts by public and third sector organisations.
