Show Summary Details


Community participation has become part of the UK government's approach to decision making and service delivery, involving ‘joined-up’ thinking and cross-sectoral working. Current policy needs partnerships and partnerships need people. This chapter presents a critical analysis of the concepts and practice of partnership and networking, particularly as these apply to community and voluntary sector organisations in the context of current policy frameworks for regeneration and neighbourhood renewal. It highlights some of the complexities and difficulties of partnership working, and suggests some ways in which work in this area can be developed by both practitioners and managers.

Keywords: voluntary sector organizations; partnership; networking; neighbourhood renewal; community participation
