The brilliant thing about the majority of these analyses is that community development theory and practice, a long forgotten art and skill in the history of this country, becomes a central part of grass-roots upwards, neighbourhood and peer based, street-wise credibility egalitarian-based structures. Instead of the ridiculous top-down approach of the govt. which fails to recognise the enormous, but sadly (over)-disparate, strength and experiences of thousands of organisations which already exist in the community, The historical models exist - let's use them.
