How can narrative ideas be engaged with in work with communities of people? This issue of the journal responds to this question. The first paper relates to a community of experience - those people who live with physical or visual impairments. The work of the Peer Counsellors of the Irish Wheelchair Association and the National Council for the Blind of Ireland questions many taken-for-granted assumptions and offers alternative ways of responding to the experience of disability. The second paper, 'Narrative practice and community assignments', is by Michael White and explores the relevance of narrative practices to work with communities which are facing various concerns and predicaments - particularly those that are the outcome of experiences of trauma. And the third paper, by Yvonne Sliep, describes some emerging principles to assist community workers who are seeking to respond to vulnerable children in poverty-stricken environments. The second section of this issue contains a paper compiled by Shona Russell and Maggie Carey that heralds the beginning of an exciting new project here at Dulwich Centre on 'Feminism, therapy and narrative ideas'. We hope this journal edition will offer ideas as to how narrative practices can inform work with communities in your particular context.
