A control freak, she is entirely lacking in self-awareness, making her encounters with colleagues, family, and her partner, Brian, wonderfully entertaining and richly comic.

    The Sony Award Winning comedy Clare in the Community returns with Sally Phillips as Clare Barker, the social worker who has the right jargon for every problem she comes across, but never a practical solution. Since the last series, society itself has improved little, so there are still plenty of challenges out there for an involved, caring social worker. Or even Clare.
