This chapter critically examines what has changed, and not changed, for below the radar community groups. It highlights the changing fortunes of the idea of community, and the roles expected of community groups, in a shifting policy environment. In addition, the chapter examines the diversity of activities undertaken by these groups and their relationship with the wider communities they are located in. It also raises questions on the willingness, or ‘capacity’ of such groups to ‘scale up’ to take on more substantial roles in the delivery of both policy agendas and services.

Keywords:   below the radar, community groups, public policy, services, growth, replication, austerity
