Case study: Working in Place: The Rank Foundation
The Rank Foundation runs its place-based programme alongside responsive grant-making. It has used this approach in over five places over the last decade. Each time the approach evolves/develops, however, certain features remain consistent, including grants to local projects plus some capacity building and convening activity.
This case study is about the Rank Foundation’s work in Dundee. The Foundation is also continuing to work in Hull on an extension of a previous programme. The case study is based on interviews with Rank Foundation staff and trustees, the local coordinator in Dundee and a review of programme documents/materials.
