Can’t believe this is now over a decade old. A must for any community development worker working in Wales (even north Wales!).
Surely it is time for a revised version or a collection of new perspectives?
Communities First entering a second decade; the publication of a national framework for community development; a much expanded and trained community development workforce; government recognition of the need for and funding of ongoing development of the workforce; recession and forced austerity; continuing divergence of UK and Wales regeneration policy; advent of primary legislative powers for the National Assembly for Wales; the Children and Families Measure in Wales.
All have surely re-shaped the community development and tackling poverty scene in Wales?
