Content

Community development is an important field and method of social work practice. This unit aims to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to integrate community development into their social work roles. This practice field plays a significant role in government, non-government, volunteer and in for-profit social service organisations. Community development is used within all levels of government (local, state and commonwealth) and across many departments (youth, health, communities, ageing, housing, disabilities, multicultural, indigenous). Community development is a form of practice, a broad philosophical and political approach which focuses on collective efforts to improve community wellbeing, and is based on a critical understanding of inequality in our socio-political structures.
