Local community is group of residents in one society, having the same interests. They exist independently from the government, but still, the approval of existence is important for the local community. Local community is the main source of local self-government, and for the residents it is the most common way to reach and fulfill democratic participation.
In this dissertation I was trying to investigate the civil parish Smlednik and also the needs of its people. The main goal was to discover if this community is in need of competences and knowledge, which could be brought with social educator.
Quick evaluation results have shown that having the social educator in local community is almost necessary since the issues are always there. Despite that fact residents have evaluated Smlednik as favorably.
There are two possibilities how to intervene in this community. One is to reach better communication with municipality and the second one is to deepen the relationships between residents. The ways to intervene in this community are following: integration of immigrants, educational courses, different events, practical courses.
