This is an account of interventions by a social development team, a local training and development initiative assembled by MDSL-Formation (MDSL 1995), a French national community development agency. MDSL works alongside local people to establish development projects born out of the needs of local people and within a framework of partnership, based on the theme of ‘Adults and parents and their neighbourhoods’.
