All managers face difficult choices — relating, for example, to conflicts of interest between various stakeholders; political imperatives; resource allocation or staff management decisions. This chapter explores some of the ethical conflicts and dilemmas that arise for managers of community practice. It uses two case studies relating to regeneration and mental health work to illustrate how managers conceptualise and handle ethical dilemmas and demonstrates how their practice embodies certain core values or principles.
