This chapter pursues in more detail the types of staff and organisational development that can best enable community practice to flourish. It articulates an experiential learning approach, based on theories of individual and organisational learning cycles. Kolb's (1984) ‘learning cycle’ model provides a compelling framework for enhancing continuous improvement of community practice at both the individual and organisational levels.
