As a retired, and ageing, development worker my social work life in three local authorities has been far more committed to community develoment theory and practice than mainstream social work. Having been heavily involved locally in social and community development developments, including regional credit unions, we are trying, at www.realife.org.uk to use CDP principles to work from the grass-roots upwards. But, sadly, there is little interested or discussion in the local statutory depts, or even the third sector, about CDP values and any local links would be much appreciated.
