Community Profiling Reviews


"This is a user friendly guide to the process of auditing social needs. It provides a step-by-step guide to the construction of a community profile which may be read by those with next to no idea about conducting social research. Though it attempts to keep things simple in order not to deter the inexperienced, it does not shy away from describing some of the philosophical underpinnings of this type of endeavour nor does it avoid the need to point out the difficulties which may be encountered by those who take up the challenge...The enthusiastic tone is so infectious that one feels impelled to go out there and start profiling." - Criminal Behaviour & Mental Health "...an invaluable tool for professionals working at field level who wish to become effective in influencing those who plan, commission or manage services in their community...I recommend this book as a prerequisite to embarking on project work especially as itincludes a comprehensive bibliography of recent literature." - CAIPE Bulletin; UK Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education "...well organised and clearly written and the notes at the end of each chapter, the guides to further reading andthe annotated bibliography are all extremely useful." - Community Development Journal "This book is essentially practical. It stems from the authors' own experiences of carryingout community profiles and social audits. It takes the reader clearlyand simply through planning a community profile, collecting the information and putting the profile to use...The book is well-written. It is straightforward and easy to understand." - Local GovernmentStudies "The strength of the publication is the helpful mapping, which sets out how to plan a community profile; how to useexisting community information and collect new data; how to store andanalyse information and how to collate and present it." - Journal of Interprofessional Care
