Key messages Imagine a small discussion group consisting of experienced community workers and members of community groups. They have listened to the examples summarised earlier in this chapter. Indeed, some of them took part in the actions. Now they decide to specify the practice lessons that can be drawn from the examples as a whole: an overall analysis. The lessons are not abstract principles, nor are they theoretical statements. Rather they are practical points that members of the group, as people who are experienced in community development and social inclusion work, think should be given close consideration in order for effective practice to be achieved.

There is a saving on the public purse resulting from this kind of support. It also means that the need for longer rehabilitation measures is reduced. However, sustaining a cooperative such as Kullen is often undermined because of the difficulty of obtaining resources to enable members of the cooperative to access education and training. The cooperative’s survival is also highly dependent on the commitment and self-reliance of its members. People need to be touched emotionally if they are to get involved and stay involved.

Moreover, the job package is flexible so that co-workers can always take on new challenges and opportunities to learn. Their situations – physical, psychological, family – are also taken very much into account. Consequence: it is easy to persevere in the work, which gives people a sense of success.

The group continued to meet after CEBSD’s project had finished and it has developed a model of good practice based on its work with local people.
