It is a project or projects where joint planned action of members of a community and a Social Worker comes together.
The aim is to promote the social functioning of the community by:

- Ensuring that effective resources exist which are adjusted to the needs of the community.
- Democratic participation by the community is made possible.
A community work project is based on data on a community, such as its origin and development, demographic data and tendencies, nature of social institutions, availability of resources, incidence and range of social problems as well as the potential of people.
This data is used for developing and implementing social welfare programs.
Community projects focus on the interest of particular persons and groups in the community – enhancing the quality of service delivery.
