Abstract

Report on the contribution of a community development approach to community care, drawing on four pilot initiatives in Scotland. Explores the links between community care and other issues which are of concern to local people, and how this can be used to reduce the social exclusion of service users and carers. Draws lessons for effective partnership working between community organisations and voluntary and statutory sector service providers.
