This chapter evaluates the successes and challenges experienced in developing a Community Care Development Project. In recognition of the lack of joint work on ‘community care’ and ‘community development’, a three-year pilot project was established in Hull in 1999 by a partnership of local statutory and voluntary sector agencies to determine whether the community sector could be supported in addressing unmet low-level support and care needs. The chapter begins by outlining the national and local background to the project, before moving on to document the approach taken. The extent to which the project had a measurable impact on communities is then considered, in particular, the extent to which it met the community care needs of local communities.
