Firstly, everyday community practice matters because of the relational work it does in an ongoing way across communities, however they are defined. One relationship with a worker or service is a start, but if we are to take an everyday community practice approach, then working to expand and diversify relationships creates more options for support and changes my power status from recipient to connected community member. Secondly, everyday community practice challenges hierarchical power relations, demonstrates alternative approaches for acting together and builds capacity for collective leadership and decision- making. Thirdly, everyday community practice links the micro-l evel with much broader social analysis and change. Finally, everyday community practice takes a practical but nuanced approach to working on sometimes overwhelming issues linked to social change. Thinking about what we do in the everyday to make change provides a way to actions that start small and build slowly. For some, this will mean change is too slow, and that frustration is understandable.
