Down Under has been written in response to the questions that Dave Andrews, the world-renowned Australian community worker, has been asked again and again by community workers all over the world. 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 Daves partner Anges in-depth, hands-on, face-to-face community work with refugees.
