Grundtvig - Network for Community development with marginalised social groups

This resource is one of the outputs of a partnership formed by four European organisations involved in community work and citizen participation with disadvantaged or marginalised social groups in numerous and diverse locations throughout Europe. The partnership includes Scottish Community Development Centre (UK), Cooperativa Estrategies de Transformacio Comunitaria Sostenible (Spain), Association of Local Democracy Agencies (France), Association of Community Developers (Hungary).  The objective of the partnership and of this resource is to facilitate the mutual learning of innovative tools of community development that tackle the problems of marginalized social groups in different regions of Europe. The main aim will be to share knowledge and experiences of innovative, interdisciplinary, community based methods effective in combating poverty that can be adapted in other countries, in different local contexts.
