Finding ways to measure effectiveness and evaluate the impact of the work that community workers do is essential. In the context of disaster recovery, which is particularly relevant in Australia currently, the survival of whole communities could depend on this (Lonne et al., 2017). Despite this, such a topic is often only addressed in the final chapters of text books, which downgrades its importance. The Impact of Community Work: How to Gather Evidence breaks this tradition and starts at the point where many texts end. The chapters provide insight into different methodological perspectives and the book provides a comprehensive and useful overview of the tools available for gathering evidence and evaluating it in the context of group programs or community work.
