Partnership and Participation
Drawing together theory and practice, this comprehensive resource presents guidelines for good practice in community care work. The contributors describe the planning and implementation of pioneering initiatives in the community, analyse their effectiveness and outline their practical implications in the light of the current legislative framework.
