Community practice is identified most frequently as the management of change, inter-agency working, community profiling, social auditing, partnership work, consulting service users, working with voluntary sector organisations, understanding and working with different ethnic, cultural and religious groups, research methodologies and community consultation. This book aims to address those people who are managing these processes. It is highly relevant to managers of community workers and community development workers, but above all it is aimed at those managers in the fields of health, planning, economic development, environmental work, social work, youth work, policing, community safety or education who have a brief to develop and implement community policies. The book also contributes towards equipping managers to face the new challenges presented by the continuing development of a community focus in public policy.
