AnnotationThis book, based on a survey of over 1000 neighbourhood care projects throughout England, suggests that the contribution local residents can make is vital and positive - but also severely limited. Successful Good Neighbouring depends largely on sensitive organisation within schemes, and on close and supportive relationships between schemes and the local statutory welfare authorities.
