Description

Over the last few years there has been a revival of interest in community development work as an approach to tackling problems of disaffection and disadvantage within south Wales. However, the history of community development, and its particular approach to social change in south Wales over the past thirty years has largely escaped serious documentation. This volume provides a comprehensive overview setting community development work in south Wales in its historical context, as well as offering definitions of community development, the role of the practitioner and on values and issues in community development work. Detailed case studies from practitioners illustrate the search for a specifically Welsh model of community development practice, while the volume concludes with a discussion of the implications of past experience for future practice.
