In 2006 the PB Unit conducted an evaluation of PB in the UK. Newcastle's U Decide programme, though just in its infancy at this time, was included as a case study.

From 2006 to 2008, the Newcastle Partnership piloted PB using £280K Neighbourhood Renewal Fund money. Over the two years, 5 projects were delivered across two pilot programmes. The footprint for the first programme covered Lemington, Denton and Woolsington. The second programme targeted children and young people across the whole city. The Partnership produced two annual reports which consider the main headlines from the pilots. To read more, follow the link:
