(p.163) Eight Disability and the discourses of the Single Regeneration Budget
Urban renaissance?

Policy Press

This chapter explores how disability and the needs of disabled people are defined in the Labour government's partnership-based urban policy. It examines disabled people's involvement in one particular regeneration initiative, the Single Regeneration Budget (SRB), and discusses how SRB policy itself defines disability and disabled people's needs at a strategic level. The chapter analyses SRB's discourse of partnership and the place of disabled people within it, and suggests that there is a hierarchy inherent in the perceived relevance and importance attached to different partners.

Keywords:   disability, disabled people, urban policy, Labour government, partnership, SRB
