This booklet is about sharing our process with other people so that they may be able to do the same in other communities. We have realised how valuable this kind of research is in the process of community development and we would like to help share our experiences of collaborative and community participative research. We hope that this handbook will serve as a guideline for any community leader, teacher or researcher who would like to undertake similar research projects. We realise that there are other ways of doing this, but you may find it helpful to see how we went about the community assessment process. In this booklet we will be providing background information that will help to create a context for doing this kind of research, and we will be outlining various steps in the process. To help bring life to this research process, we will give real lived experiences and examples from the Railton Community Assessment Project (CAP) team. Please consult the Railton Community Assessment Project Report for a comprehensive description of the research processes and findings referred to in this booklet. We hope this handbook is helpful to you and your community.
