Community work is concerned with the development and empowerment of communities through facilitating the active participation of people in addressing issues that affect them collectively.It can be done in a variety of contexts: in neighbourhoods, with specific groups (e.g. women, Travellers) as well as with partnership groups, local authorities and state agencies. Community work in Ireland is presented with a number of opportunities and challenges by the rapidly changing social context of recent years, including work with new communities, migrant workers and refugees, and combating racism; as well as challenging the persistence of other social and economic inequalities.
