And the answers that he shares with us in this book have been forged and tested in the fire of his own personal, vocational and professional experience as a grass roots community worker. Down Under addresses the adverse effects of professionalisation and institutionalisation in community work and seeks to explore effective ways of resisting demands for compliance, holding the line and creating space for change. Down Under concludes with the wonderful example of Dave's partner Ange's in-depth, hands-on, face-to-face community work with refugees.
