              Increasingly students and practitioners in human services are asked or seek to include community engagement, participation and capacity building in their work with groups. In this book expert authors Amanda Howard and Margot Rawsthorne provide guidance on the theory and practice ...of working with communities, from preliminary planning and scoping before direct work with the community begins, through to evaluation. They explore key issues including developing an understanding of community life, facilitating and supporting community action, understanding and acting on structural inequity, managing negotiation and conflict, and building productive networks. They draw extensively on their own work with communities and research to create a dialogue with the reader on the interaction of task and process in everyday community practice. Written in a friendly and accessible style and featuring the voices of community workers throughout, this is a vital guide for anyone seeking to encourage positive change in an important field of practice. 'This is a splendid addition to the community work literature, offering wise and judicious guidance for those engaged knee-deep in community practice ... it acknowledges that the increasing emphasis on individualised service options has too often led to the neglect of understanding the benefits of collective action within diverse and dynamic communities.' - Dr Winsome Roberts, Honorary Senior Fellow, Department of Social Work, University of Melbourne

              This book celebrates the enormous achievement of the Area Assistance Scheme over its 30-year history in encouraging and resourcing community and social infrastructure, networks, support systems, and innovation. In sharing the history of the AAS in Western Sydney (where it began) ...and on the Central Coast, this book also provides community workers, activists, students, scholars, and policy makers with ideas, processes, and lessons for working collaboratively and respectfully with local communities. Including eye witness accounts, extensive research, analysis, and discussion, the book connects influential ideas and perspectives shaping social policy and resource allocation with practical examples of how this can and does happen using different funding models. If you work in the community sector, are part of a local group or organisation, or are interested in learning about work with local communities, this book will provide you with valuable examples of how participatory planning can be supported. If you are a policy maker, academic, student, or politician, this book will provide a critical analysis, which links key policy ideas with the practicalities of implementation at a local level. It answers the questions, what is possible when community participation is at the centre of planning and funding decisions, and what are the processes required to encourage this kind of participation?
