About the Book

Communities are a context, target and resource for social work practice. They can be both a source of care and support and the site of poverty, conflict and discrimination. This text examines the relationship between social work and community in terms of theoretical perspectives, research, policy intervention and professional practice. It offers a coherent analysis of the importance of community in social work activity, exploring themes such as welfare modernisation, inclusion, sustainability, multi-professional working and anti-oppressive practice.
