What do community work and community development look like in practice? More specifically, what do they look like in social work practice? In this episode, I’ll first chat with Palvindran S/O Jayram (Manager, Community Hubs), who worked as a social worker before moving to community work. Next, Jermaine speaks with a resident, Lydia Susiyanti (Resident and Community Activator, 643 Community Hub), who first started as a community volunteer. A big theme you’ll hear from both conversations is that role demarcation and definitions, often framed through the lens of traditional social work practice, are not always clear or helpful. In fact, they could even stigmatise.
With Palvindran and Lydia, we also talk about community development’s challenges and their plans for the future.
