"All over the UK, clustered around former industrial regions and coastal towns, lies a landscape of lost opportunity, there are entire communities that have been left behind, made redundant and their hey day lost to history.

"The only way to reverse this decay is to start adding value once again in our wonderful country. These abandoned communities offer untapped potential. Skills and education offer a valuable resource and way out of the spiral of decline."
