This chapter concludes the book by drawing together conclusions from the earlier chapters to address the question of how community practice can be mainstreamed by organisations and programmes. It argues that the community involvement aspects of regeneration and social inclusion policies are creating a new frame of reference for public sector managers, which is generating a significant intellectual and organisational challenge. The new government agenda which seeks to use core or mainstream local services to tackle neighbourhood renewal, as opposed to doing this through special programmes of short-term central government funding, requires significant shifts for managers in the way they manage their work outside their organisations, the way they manage the interface with communities and the way they manage within their organisations.
