The first edition of this book discussed the meaning, principles, and methods of managing community practice, focusing on the role and skills needed by managers. Since the first edition, there has been an increase in the structured involvement of communities in developing, delivering, and evaluating public policies and projects. This new edition updates all the chapters to address these recent developments and provides new case examples. It also includes new chapters on the manager’s role in community research and key challenges for the future.
Community Care, about the first edition
"This fine volume is further confirmation of the growing importance of 'neighbourhood' in delivering public services. The book is for managers and practitioners and helps understand 'going local' and how it will help reshape organisations as they redirect their energies toward providing neighbourhood-based services."
Keith Popple, London South Bank University
"This well-written, highly recommendable text provides readers with much that will be valuable in the challenge of managing of community practice in order to benefit local people."
