This chapter considers how front-line professionals are coping in this context of increasing ethical uncertainty, shifting professional boundaries, and increasing pressures from modernising/New Public Management agendas. How do they hold on to their professional ethics, avoiding total moral relativism, disengagement, and/or terminal burn-out? While the study explores the dilemmas as they are experienced by front-line professionals working with communities around regeneration, there may be common issues as well as differences with the experiences of other professionals concerned with care, citizenship, and communities more generally. This may be the case whether or not those concerned necessarily define themselves as ‘professionals’, which is a potentially problematic and contested term.

Keywords:   front-life professionals, ethics, moral relativism, New Public Management
