Here's a couple of options ... from least expensive to most expensive:
if your engine is turning over, then your electrical system is probably good, but if you are not getting fire, it is likely your spark plugs. Try replacing them and see if that fixes it.
If it is not your plugs, then you might have an issue with your spark-plug wiring (between the distributor and the plugs). If they look old and worn, try putting on a new set.
It could be your fuel system -- if your engine is not getting gas, it won't fire no matter how good the plugs are. Give it a new fuel filter first and try it out ... if not that then try the fuel pump.
If you are still not getting fire to the engine, have someone look at your distributor cap -- if it is not distributing power to the spark plugs correctly then your engine will not fire
If it is not any of these problems, you will probably have to take the car to a professional and have them give it a look. The above issues are the most common, most likely, and easiest and cheapest to fix, so I would try those first. If you plan on doing the work yourself, grab a Haynes manual to help you out -- it might even have a list of common issues that are specific to your make and model of car.

Changed timing belt, starter turning, plugs have fire but will not fire off or start

if the car ran fine before you did the timing belt, than most likely you dont have it in time or the distributor is not in the right spot.

2002 renault scenic wont start, turns over ok but wont fire

if it has the 1.9dci engine there is a small low pressure fuel pump below the car tucked in behind the front sub frame. its about the size off a redbull can with a pipe at either side. turn the ignition on and listen for a buzzing noise almost below drivers footwell. if you dont here anything your pump has gone. new pump costs around £100 but if the car is worth fixing it is a good investment.. dont bother with 2nd hand because they give ALOT OF BOTHER.
