Appendix 1: Record of consultations

Throughout the study, the work has benefited from the input of the members of the Steering Group (listed below).

The first phase of the work included:

  • a review of relevant literature on the definition, conceptualisation and measurement of deprivation and related terms;
  • interviews with around 20 representatives of central government, local government, other public agencies, voluntary and community groups and academics;
  • two focus groups conducted with representatives of community organisations from a variety of rural and urban locations; and
  • a number of written submissions from representatives of public and voluntary sector groups.

This led to the publication of an Interim Report (Bailey et al, 2003), setting out our initial conclusions and requesting feedback on a wide range of questions. This report provided the basis for a formal consultation process. Three public meetings were held in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, attended by around 60 people in total (listed below). Further written comments were received from around 30 individuals from a wide range of organisations (listed below).
