Abstract: A client’s experience of community (and of other supports involved with the client) is reflected in the opportunities which provide for a close relationship with others who share the common purpose of supporting the client’s growth and change. Within this commitment, there is room to incorporate differences and to acknowledge shared responsibility. The paper will provide an overview of the parallel principles of community and case management and their relationship to the work we do. A case-study will also be discussed to enable us to understand the client’s own experience of community case management.
