This chapter explores the last of Roland Warren's five functions — mutual support and solidarity. In the western European context, the term ‘community care’ is more likely to be used. The chapter begins by setting the scene for connecting community care and community development. It presents two case studies, one in the UK and one in Hungary. This material provides the context for the setting out of seven principles that can be used to guide a community development approach to community care. The chapter concludes by emphasizing the importance of this approach, both for individuals in communities and for social policy.

Keywords:   Roland Warren, community care, mutual support, community development, UK, Hungary, social policy
