This research examines the concept of participation and its application to the relationship between individuals and the state. It approaches the subject from two angles; firstly by considering the role of community work and community workers employed by the local state, and secondly by investigating the relationships that developed between community based groups and departments of the local state. The research was undertaken within Derbyshire and focuses on its Social Service Department, as the main employer of community workers within the County and because of this Department's relationships with the particular community groups studied.
