Formatted Abstract/Summary Within normative community development processes people come together because they share some common concern. This 'coming together' usually emerges organically- people find one another within their existing networks, or it can happen purposefully - someone such as a community worker, leader or activist enables it to happen through networking and inviting people to come together. In this process of coming together people discover the possibilities and potentials of cooperation. People learn or realise that what they could not do or make sense of alone, they can do as a group. Within community development methodology a key part of this process is the shift from what is sometimes understood as 'I' to 'We'. lt is a critical shift, a significant movement. It is the formation or construction of community (Brent 2009).[extract]
