Working with communities is a key policy and practice priority for government and non-government agencies in Australia. This unit will critically examine the current policy frameworks informing work with communities as well as current practice models of community development and community engagement. The unit seeks to explore the why and how of work with communities. It will draw on an emerging Australian body of research about working with communities as well as drawing on experiences in the United Kingdom and the United States. This unit is suitable for practitioners seeking to work more effectively with communities.
